    I haven't been checking the Yellowstone seismos for quite a while. I just went to them and there seems to be some activity that is widespread over all three regions but nothing beyond what we normally see on occasion.

      I checked some other regions and the activity isn't a reflection of the Indonesian quakes. Probably the Montana thump. The Utah ICU station seems kind of active. Have no idea what thats about.

          Tenn. researchers discover inactive earthquake fault
          ASCE SmartBrief | 08/31/2009

          University of Memphis researchers have discovered an inactive earthquake fault about 25 miles long, running under the Mississippi River at Memphis. The fault runs up to a mile deep and was discovered with a technique using acoustic energy. "Faults that are active today might not be the only systems that generate earthquakes," said Maria Beatrice Magnani, assistant research professor at the University of Memphis.

                        • It is part of my daily routine to check the USGS Earthquake site every day. I find earthquakes, volcanoes, tornados very interesting. Three places seem to have many small earthquakes every day--Alaska, S. California and Puerto Rico. Never knew that there were earthquakes in Puerto Rico so I did a little research. The Puerto Rico Trench runs just north of the island and is where the Carribean and N. American Plates meet.

                          • This evening in Guadalupe Victoria, Mexico, 5.1, 4.2, 3.2. This is very near the California border. These quakes are on the fault that divides the tectonic plates.

                                Mayon Volcano, Philippines
                                Three minor ash explosions occurred at the summit crater of Mayon Volcano in Philippines today at 5:37 am. The eruptions lasted for 3 minutes and produced a brown ash column which rose 700 m above the summit. Eleven volcanic earthquakes were recorded in the past 24 hours. Mayon volcano remains at level 2 alert. A 6 km radius Permanent Danger Zone, and 7 km Extended Danger Zone on the southeast flank of the volcano remain in place.

                                Sakar Volcano, Papua New Guinea
                                A possible eruption plume was observed at Sakar volcano on 19th September 2009. Plume extended 90 nautical miles NW of the volcano. No emissions visible on satellite images. The eruption has not been confirmed. The emissions are thin, and may be ash, steam, or smoke. There has been no historical eruption at the volcano.
