Northwest Yellowstone area sees earthquake swarm

Lower Geyser Basin at Yellowstone

A magnitude 3.6 quake shook an area of the Olympic Peninsula northwest of Seattle Thursday night.

The U.S. Geological Survey says a 3.5 magnitude natural disaster was recorded at 2:35 a.m. about 12 miles west of Perry in Noble County.

The epicenter of the quake was about 8 miles to the North of West Yellowstone, at a depth of about 7.2 miles. The swarm of about 30 earthquakes of magnitude 2 and larger began Monday. Nine earthquakes followed. At 2:02 Friday, a 2.8 magnitude quake hit the same area.

The West Yellowstone Police Department says the initial quake was felt in the town that borders the park but there were no reports of damage. No reports of damage came after March 2014's quake, for instance. Indeed, 2014 saw a host of noticeable natural disaster activity around Yellowstone, with swarms rocking Idaho and western Montana.

Since 1894, there have been 41 deaths in Yellowstone Lake, the most recent in 1997 when two people died while canoeing.
