Is The Yellowstone Volcano On The Brink of Eruption?

YELLOWSTONE QUAKE SWARM ONGOING- PRODUCES M4.5 QUAKE

Yellowstone has had a lot of minor quakes recently.

This is not suggesting anything but… the media has been completely silent.

Underneath the surface, there is a lot of stuff that is molten and hot as hell. It appears to be moving… and leaving this trembles in their wake.

Again, not suggesting anything but… but, if Yellowstone erupts, and it will someday, it will lay waste to all withing hundreds of miles.
A statement released from the YVO reads as follows:

The University of Utah, a YVO member agency, sent out the following press release about a magnitude 4.5 earthquake near West Yellowstone, MT that occurred at 6:48 PM MDT.

PRESS RELEASE
University of Utah Seismograph Stations

Released: June 15, 2017 07:55 PM MDT

The University of Utah Seismograph Stations reports that a light earthquake of magnitude 4.5 occurred at 06:48 PM on June 15, 2017 (MDT). The epicenter of the shock was located in Yellowstone National Park, eight miles north-northeast of the town of West Yellowstone, Montana.

The earthquake was reported felt in the towns of West Yellowstone and Gardiner, Montana, in Yellowstone National Park, and elsewhere in the surrounding region. Today’s earthquake is part of an energetic sequence of earthquakes in the same area that began on June 12.

This sequence has included approximately thirty earthquakes of magnitude 2 and larger and four earthquakes of magnitude 3 and larger, including today’s magnitude 4.5 event.

Today’s earthquake is the largest earthquake to occur in Yellowstone National Park since March 30, 2014, when a magnitude 4.8 event occurred 18 miles to the east, near Norris Geyser Basin.

Anyone who felt the earthquake is encouraged to fill out a survey form either on the Seismograph Stations website: www.quake.utah.edu or the US
