Weekend News + New Madrid Shakes

Heli_ANI

YellowStn_Poster  There are strange west-coast events (volcano, L.A. quake) that are on the Yellowstone blog today.
There isn’t a direct connection to Yellowstone in the stories but maybe it it is connected somehow and it will come out later. And the Mich. quake this week is very out of the ordinary. It is mentioned in comments in the next post
(Tues. News).

Check the Yellowstone blog for updates on these events.
