Lots of earthquakes happening at Yellowstone recently, but it seems this is not anything to be worried about as it happens fairly often and sometimes on a larger scale than what is happening now: ... cid=AARDHP

I remember we saw a documentary years ago on the Yellowstone Super Volcano event that may happen one day. Always an interesting subject.

And, I have noticed lately that we have been having a number of small earthquakes in our State and in other surrounding states. I wonder if there is any tie in to these earthquakes at Yellowstone or if it is just a coincidence...hmmm!

Well, activities related to fracking (especially the pumping of wastewater underground) can also cause earthquakes. I don't know if you're in a fracking state, though, but a little research could shed some light on that.

As for Yellowstone, yeah, earthquakes there are nothing new. But at present, there remains very little evidence or cause to think the caldera there is going to do anything beyond its usual rumbles. And likely not have an apocalyptic explosion that so captures imaginations. Always be extremely skeptical of basically anyone claiming that the caldera is about to erupt, unless that person is actually a real, vetted expert in volcanoes. Yellowstone is always under close watch by such people.
