Yellowstone National Park. One of the most famous, and albeit highly raved about the national park in the entire world, it is an attraction that many has claimed that one should at least visit once in their lives.
The pride of North America, Yellowstone National Park spreads across three states – a testament to its ginormous land area, the herds and herds of bison, and a unique and peculiar range of animals and vegetation that live there. One of the most famous hotspots in the world, with its renowned geysers that have been around for thousands of years, Yellowstone National Park shows no signs of showing down. Or is it?
Earthquakes are reported to be a norm at Yellowstone these past few months, sparking fear and concern about the evil that lies within Yellowstone’s vast plains. That has remained dormant for 70,000 years. However, the earthquakes show no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Since June 12, they have been frequent and increasingly stronger in magnitude, with a 4.0 magnitude earthquake that happened on 23rd June. There has been a record of over 400 earthquakes since June 12, causing much worry and fear. In a press release by scientists from the University of Utah, who have been keeping track of the changes around Yellowstone, said: “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 reportedly felt in the towns of West Yellowstone and Gardiner, Montana, in Yellowstone National Park, and elsewhere in the surrounding region.”
However, this fear has been accounted for, though just not shortly – experts at the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) has put the odds of the volcano erupting this year at 1 in 730,000. Though the chances are so slim, natural disasters have taken many experts by surprise an unprecedented number of times. Thus measures are still going to be taken to ensure the safety of residents, and the food supply around the national park. America is in safe hands of these experts who have devoted their lives to recording the earthquakes that surround Yellowstone. One’s mind can be put to ease with them around, for sure!
