Earthquake map Utah to Yellowstone

I like to think that I am really involved in my hobby activities especially the low cost, or no cost ones.  Observing seismic activity (earthquakes) in seven day intervals in the Intermountain West with me located in the middle of the observed area suits my criteria. My information comes from the University of Utah Seismic Station just up the road in Salt Lake City UT.

This precise information is updated regularly as it is reported. I could check hourly and often find new results. My choice of weekly intervals allows me easy observations of recent events.

Be assured ~ I observe, never predict. My aim always is to inform, never to alarm. Nevertheless there is a certain charm and excitement in living in "earthquake country".

This week's map shows a minor earthquake (3.1) near Star Valley Ranch WY.  (UUSS data shows 3.0 and above information in red.)   So-o the remaining 65 events were in the micro category (<3.0).   33 0f them occurred in West Yellowstone MT (no doubt, to give the summer tourists something to talk about). Closer to home, UT hosted 17 of the week's seismic events. Most of these pass unheeded by the local population.

Wherever you live, I wish you a happy choice of hobbies.

Larry,  your seismic reports are always so interesting.  We just don't realize how much the earth is moving under our feet.  Hey isn't there a song like that.....

Ronald - I don't mind sharing. If I followed seismic events in CA, I might find I had a full time job rather than a hobby.

Barbara - glad to be of service. My black hat has been with me for about fourteen years. The kangaroo skin has been through a lot and is very hard wearing. For formal occasions I give it a good brush and a taste of saddle soap. I tend to feel nekid without it.

Belinda - why stop at one. We could probably come up with a few. "Mountaintop Rock" and others. I must check CO figures again soon.

Andrea - probably we all need sone white knuckle experiences to keep life interesting. (Tornadoes and tsunamis I'm not so sure of)
