Earthquake swarm in the park exceeds 1,000

More than 1,000 small and moderate earthquakes have occurred in Yellowstone National Park since Sunday, according to the National Park Service.

That's more than half of the average annual total in the park - 1,600 annually. Last year, a swarm of more than 800 earthquakes near Yellowstone Lake was recorded in late December and early January. In total, more than 1,650 earthquakes were recorded in the park in 2009.

"Many of these events are very small," said Peter Cervelli, acting scientist in charge of Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. "The total energy released is lower than a magnitude 4."

The seismic activity is concentrated in the northwest corner of the Yellowstone Caldera, in the park roughly halfway between the Old Faithful, West Yellowstone. Ten of the earthquakes have been magnitude 3.0 or greater, with a 3.8 magnitude earthquake recorded late Wednesday night. The larger earthquakes have been felt by people in the Old Faithful, West Yellowstone, Canyon, Mammoth Hot Springs, Grant Village, Madison and Gardiner. No damage or injuries have been reported. More than 800 earthquakes have been less than 2.0 in magnitude.

Most earthquakes of magnitude 3.0 are not felt. Usually it takes an earthquake of magnitude 4.0 or greater to cause structural damage, and a magnitude 6.5 earthquake and the surface of the earth to rupture.

The current seismic activity due to changing pressures and change in the earth's crust, and not to any change or increase in volcanic activity at Yellowstone, scientists agree.

Cervelli said scientists are detecting more of the smaller earthquakes due to better control.

"Our ability to locate events keeps getting better," he said.

Cervelli said there is no known reason why cloud happened last year and this year at about the same season.

The National Park Service is using the occasion to strengthen preparedness for earthquakes and to remind employees and visitors as unique geological nature and active park has resulted in the creation of the world's largest collection of geysers, hot springs and other hydrothermal features.

Seismic activity is monitored at all times by the staff of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory, a cooperative effort of the National Park Service, the U.S. Geological Survey and the University of Utah.

There is no connection . If you suffer from fears that can not rationally hold, usually is due to another problem . This is much more likely to be an emotional staff a physical or mental illness .
Are you suffering from a stressful family life , or is there some sort of pressure at school that is making life difficult for you ?

Jesus is 2000 years late, so I guess it 's not coming , and it's right there in your Bible , he says he will return in a generation his listeners to deny all you want , Christianity is falsified by this passage in Matthew 16 : 27 For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels, and then He will reward each according to his works . 28 Verily I say unto you , There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom .

Yes He said there would be earthquakes in one place after another ,
and that there would be great earthquakes :
And as he sat upon the mount of Olives , the disciples came unto him privately , saying : " Tell us, when shall these things
* Y * What will be the sign of your presence and of the conclusion of the system of things ? " Matthew 24:3 --- " For nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom ,
and there will be food shortages and earthquakes in one place after another . All these things are a beginning of pangs of distress .

No. That is a misunderstanding of Matthew 24 (especially verse 7) and other passages.

As Matthew 24 begins, Jesus shows his disciples the temple and he says, "Assuredly, I say to you, not one stone shall be left here upon another, that shall not be thrown down.” (verse 2)

Then the disciples ask him two (or it can be divided into 3) questions.

They asked, "Tell us, when will these things be? And what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” (verse 3)

I believe that at the time they really did not fully understand what they were asking, but later Jesus opened their minds and gave them the Holy Spirit that would guide them into all truth. (John 16:13, Luke 24:45)

They asked multiple questions and Jesus answered them in the order they were asked.

The first question was answered in verses 4 - 35.

Remember the first question was "when will these things be?"

"These things" were the things Jesus was just speaking of. This included the destruction of the temple and Jerusalem.

Verses 4-35 speaks of "those days" and various signs. It also speaks of "let those who are in Judea flee to the mountains. Let him who is on the housetop not go down to take anything out of his house. And let him who is in the field not go back to get his clothes. But woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing babies in those days! And pray that your flight may not be in winter or on the Sabbath." (vs 16-20)

If this was speaking of the second coming of Christ, why would it matter if someone was in the city, the mountains, in the housetop, the field, pregnant, or if it was winter? And why would anyone go back to get clothes?

This can't be speaking of Christ's second coming!

But then there was the question they asked about, "what will be the sign of Your coming, and of the end of the age?” This question was answered beginning in verse 36.

Instead of "those days", verse 36 and following says "that day". Instead of signs, these verses say there will be no sign. It will be "as the days of Noah". Normal life was going on, and then the floods came suddenly and washed them all away.

The point is made that you should be ready because no one knows when the Lord will return!

In the days of Noah, they "did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be."

Earthquake occurrence has been pretty steady since 1900:…

The Bible also says there was a massive earthquake when Jesus was crucified.

Strangely, no contemporaries at that time every mention it.

So the Mormons were right...Jesus did come to else would he know about Jellystone Park? Nobody else did in those days.
