Yellowstone earthquake news confirmed after the 5.1 magnitude earthquake struck California on Friday.

A 4.8 magnitude earthquake recently shook one of the most visited places in the country. The Yellowstone National Park which happens to sit on the top of a super- volcano was struck by an earthquake on Sunday. According to seismic records, smaller quakes were already felt since Thursday.

The national park which is 3,472 square miles (8,992 square km) of Wyoming, Montana and Idaho are being visited by different people every year. About three million individuals visit the park each year to see its iconic geysers and other wildlife attractions. Yellowstone earthquake news has also brought fear though no serious damages were noted as well as worries that the super volcano might erupt.

Yellowstone earthquake news recorded the latest quake to be around 6:34 in the morning on Sunday which was felt near the Norris Geyser Basin and was also felt 23 miles from two small Montana towns near the park entrances, Gardiner and West Yellowstone. As the 4.8 magnitude struck the national park, an impending volcanic eruption is also being feared by many. According to Peter Cervelli from the U.S. Geological Survey, there are no hazardous implications and that it is not about to erupt.

A team established by the U.S. Geological Survey is the one responsible in determining if there are any changes in the park's natural features such as geysers, mud pots and hot springs. According to Yellowstone earthquake news, the 4.8 magnitude quake that struck the park on Sunday was the largest since its last tremor on February of 1980 wherein aftershocks ranging from 2.5 to 3.3 were also felt.

The earthquake activity in Yellowstone is linked to the upward movement of molten rocks beneath the Earth's crust, according to USGS. The heat from these molten rocks beneath the caldera is responsible for the geothermal features. Yellowstone earthquake news broke off after a 5.1 magnitude earthquake has struck the regions of California resulting to minor damages.
