78 temblors. So far.
“So far Monday there have been 14 earthquakes,” says the Idaho State Journal. “They were preceded by 31 on Sunday and 33 on Saturday night. All 78 of the quakes were reported by University of Utah Seismograph Stations.”
The dozens of earthquakes that have occurred since Saturday night in Southeast Idaho are unprecedented, said Bannock County Sheriff Lorin Nielsen.
“I’ve never seen anything like this,” Nielsen said. “My wife asked if we should leave the house.”
Local authorities say they cannot ever remember any earthquake swarm in Southeast Idaho that comes even close to the current series of temblors shaking the region.
I don’t know if they’re connected or not, but when you look on a larger map, you’ll see that these earthquakes are occurring about 120 miles SSE of the Yellowstone supervolcano.
