    I woke up this morning to read that there has been a series of earthquakes in the area around Lincoln, Montana, which is just northwest of Yellowstone Park. The largest quake was 5.8-5.9, and there have been about 6 smaller quakes in the same area today.
    From what I was reading, Yellowstone has had a swarm of over 800 quakes in the last few weeks; so this might mean that we are getting closer to the caldera erupting there, which would devastate most of the United States, and effect temperatures/climate around the world.
    One person in California reported feeling the quake. While it is not likely that the quake itself was felt that far away, it could have triggered movement as far away as California.
    I am not sure if we are allowed to post links on this forum; but the USGS website has more specific information, as well as on Dutchsinse's channel on Youtube.

    In 2015, a series of earthquakes rocked my home country Nepal. There were just about 3000 shocks and after shocks for 6 months. The deadliest earthquake to occur was 8.1 M. More than 8000 people died. Even though I was not on the earthquake prone zone, my family was stranded in earthquake prone zone. I understand the danger associated with earthquake.
