3.8 Quake Just North of Yellowstone Volcano

Just now, within the hour, there was a 3.8 quake in Western Montana. This moderate quake is a bit north of the Yellowstone volcano. This quake may be related to an old subducted plate, but the quake is not deep enough for that. It's pretty shallow. Yellowstone often experiences earthquake swarms, and this time last year, had thousands of small quakes in a short period of time.
