By now, most are aware of the earthquake swarm under the Yellowstone super volcano. Many people are fearing a major eruption, and those terrors aren’t calmed for some as the national park approaches a record number of earthquakes.
A cluster of earthquakes at the Yellowstone Park volcano is the most active it’s been in recent history. The earthquake count is up to 2,357 since June with the largest having a magnitude of 4.4. The majority of the earthquakes were magnitudes of 0 or 1, according to a report by Newsweek.
Yet scientists are assuring the public that a swarm of earthquakes doesn’t necessarily signal an eruption of the super volcano. But when the type of earthquakes occurring in Yellowstone deviates from the standard, it could mean that an eruption is forthcoming. A swarm of earthquakes is rather normal for Yellowstone, but the number of quakes is approaching a new record.
