Moderate Earthquake South of Yellowstone


http://earthquake.usgs.gov/earthquakes/recenteqsus/Quakes/usc0002gt1.php#details

Above is a moderate earthquake that had happened about an hour ago. It is centered just south of the Yellowstone Park, and it's associated super volcano. It's my only guess if this quake stays on the map. We'll see. There has been a lot of tunneling in the area, and also some sonic testing to explore the shape and nature of the magma chamber below. It's to be noted that this quake is about 5 miles deep. That's Magma territory for that area.
