Idaho earthquake impacts Yellowstone

US, WASHINGTON (ORDO NEWS) — This is exactly what the Aidokho earthquake had on the seismometers that were installed in Yellowstone.

Specialists from Yellowstone National Park said that there was no connection between the earthquake that occurred on Tuesday in Idaho and the Yellowstone system. But in reality, there was an influence.

The strength of the shocks in this area reached 6.5 points. Scientists also recorded another earthquake with a magnitude of 5.7 points, which occurred in the Magna area due to the fact that a tectonic expansion occurred in it a while ago. According to experts, the earthquake will not affect the Yellowstone system.

It is worth noting that some of the more powerful earthquakes that occurred in this region in the last century have changed the behavior of geysers. Scientists noted that the geyser channels are too fragile and therefore they reacted to strong shaking in this way. Yellowstone will be closely monitored in the near future to see if the shocks in Idaho have affected the supervolcano.

In March, a rather large number of earthquakes of insignificant strength were already recorded in the area of ​​the supervolcano. In the event that the shocks in Idaho somehow affected the system, then you should prepare for the fact that the strength of the earthquakes in the Yellowstone area will increase several times.
