Mary Greeley has much more to say about new seismic activity at Yellowstone.
SCROLL DOWN for earlier reports on new shaking at Yellowstone.
“Scientists don’t think Yellowstone’s supervolcano would be erupting any time soon (at least not in the next thousand years). The odds of it erupting within a given year are one in 730,000, according to the US Geological Survey. So if you’re planning a trip there, you shouldn’t be too concerned.
If it did erupt, it could have some pretty extreme effects on the surrounding areas….”
– – – blah, blah, blah go back to sleep. So it looks like these quake swarms are just normal and the volcano being way overdue for another blow is off the table for discussion by the press.
“pretty extreme effects” is a mild way of putting it.

A recent swarm of more than 120 earthquakes near Mount St. Helens — all below a magnitude 0.5 — comes as a reminder to scientists and residents alike that while the volcano has been relatively “well-behaved” recently, another eruption is inevitable. Our news partners at the Columbian recently got in touch with scientists who study, in part, the volcano and the land beneath it. To them, these quakes are a window into what’s going on underground, and can be helpful for directing further research. “Each of these little earthquakes is a clue and a reminder we are marching toward an eruption someday,” said Weston Thelen, a U.S. Geological Survey seismologist with the Cascades Volcano Observatory in Vancouver, as reported in the Columbian.
