Earthquake Swarms Continue at Yellowstone

A swarm of earthquakes that began on Sunday at Yellowstone National Park continued this morning and the magnitude of the tremors is increasing.

As of 9:20 a.m. today, 424 earthquakes had been recorded in the swarm with the highest tremor at a magnitude of 3.3. So far, scientists state that although the tremors seem to be normal tectonic activity, they will continue to monitor the situation.

And no, there is absolutely no connection between what is occurring in Yellowstone and the magnitude 7.0 earthquake in Haiti.

The most devastating earthquake in recent history in the Yellowstone region occurred on August 17, 1959, when a magnitude 7.3 earthquake hit killing 28 people.
