Craton plate news
video update here:
Over the course of the past 48 hours, December 7th, through December 9th 2013 — a series of moderate sized earthquakes has struck directly along the edge of the North American Craton.
This newest craton edge earthquake swarm consists of upper 3.0M and mid-4.0M earthquakes occurring just South of Yellowstone National Park (supervolcano). Still well within the newly defined perimeter of the underground magma chamber(s) associated with past eruptions.
This Yellowstone swarm is on top of yesterdays 4.5 magnitude event in Oklahoma, and the ADDITIONAL 3.7 magnitude event in Northeast Texas (both at fracking operation earthquake swarm locations).
