Fourth Quake In 2 Weeks Hits Near Yellowstone National Park
It's again nothing major, but there's yet another quake that has hit near Yellowstone National Park. This marks at least 4 quakes measurable by the USGS that has hit in the past few weeks.
This one measured a 2.8 and was centered very near Hoback, Wyoming right next to the Idaho border. As you may recall, the area around Yellowstone has had a 2.5, 2.6 and 2.9 recently.
The USGS reports the major quakes, but a better reference for those of us in the Magic Valley is the University of Utah's recent earthquake map.
