Wyoming has earthquakes all the time. Most are in the western part of the state near the seismically-active Yellowstone. But, a moderate quake has just struck where we don't usually see earthquakes just south of the Bighorns.
Monday, August 17 will mark the 61st anniversary of the largest known earthquake that's ever hit Yellowstone. The magnitude 7.3 quake killed 28 and there are still remains in the park today showing what happened that day.
If you thought the Yellowstone super-volcano might be the next tragic event of 2020, it looks like you're gonna have to come up with a new theory. The USGS just shared that earthquakes in the region were way down in July from previous months.
