There are currently several seismic swarms taking place around the world. Nobody knows when they are going to stop and more frightening what they are going to produce. Yellowstone Supervolcano earthquake swarm reaches 878 events in just two weeks. The earthquake swarm hitting the Yellowstone national Park is currently slowing down, but more than 900 quakes have already hit near West Yellowstone on the western edge of the National Park in the last 2 weeks. But there is

virtually no risk of the volcano erupting – USGS hasn’t raised either the volcano alert level or the aviation color. The current earthquake swarm began on June 12. A week later, the USGS put out a statement to say that 464 earthquakes had been recorded, with the largest being magnitude 4.4. This is the highest number of earthquakes at Yellowstone within a single week in the past five years. At the time, a spokesperson for the USGS said “slowly winding down,” adding that “no other geological activity has been detected.” However, in a newly released statement about the ongoing swarm, seismologists from the University of Utah said 878 events have now been recorded at Yellowstone National Park.
