Yellowstone earthquake swarm slowing, but ongoing

Almost 770 earthquakes have been recorded in Yellowstone Park over the past two weeks — more than normal but not a sign of volcanic activity, scientists say. The swarm, which began June 12, is ongoing, though the frequency of earthquakes has slowed down a bit. Typical swarms comprise 10 to 50 quakes. So far, five quakes have measured in the magnitude 3 range and 64 in the magnitude 2 range. The other 699 have been measured at magnitude 1 or less. It seems like the quakes are tectonic in origin, there is no volcanic signature to any of the events.
