Quiet week in the Intermountain West

Intermountain Seismic Events


Observing Seismic Events (earthquakes) is a hobby that I enjoy. My area of interest is the Intermountain West (Utah to Yellowstone), chosen because I live at the middle of the map, in Sandy UT.


Information about Utah describes living in Earthquake Country, and Government information also lists suggested precautions to observe. Of particular interest to me are those dealing with seniors and persons with disabilities.


My hobby interest seeks to inform, never to alarm. For as long as, and wherever, I have indulged this hobby I have found myself somewhat of a Robinson Caruso in attracting other adherents. Mostly, Seismic Events go unreported.


My information is obtained from the reports of the US Seismic Service located at the University of Utah. Their information is updated hourly. Perhaps you have similar information for your location.


This last week has been fairly quiet in both number of events and their intensity.

  • Montana 11 events mostly at West Yellowstone

  • Utah 8 events, the largest 2.3 at Sterling UT

  • Idaho 4 events, the largest 2.4 at Clayton ID

  • Wyoming 1 event.


The closest event to Sandy UT (my home) was near Summit UT (NNE, about 12 miles), a 1.1 last Saturday.


What's happening at your place?

That is scary, Larry.  I had no idea that there were that many events going on out there.  Keep us posted!

Larry ~ Earth quakes are rare here in MD although they do happen. I think being aware of your/our surroundings is very important.
