An area near Yellowstone National Park has been struck by nearly a dozen earthquakes over the weekend, according to the US Geological Survey.
West Yellowstone in Montana reported around eleven earthquakes on Friday, with the strongest one measuring a magnitude of 3.1. The area has been hit by an additional 34 quakes in the past month, according to Idaho Statesman.
The other quakes ranged between 1.6 to 3.1 magnitudes and were about three miles (4.8 km) deep.
A swarm of earthquakes is not unusual for the area. Yellowstone is one of the most seismically active places in the US, experiencing around 700 to 3,000 earthquakes every year. via@sciencealert
