The number of earthquakes experienced since Sunday at Yellowstone National Park has now risen to 901 with two of the strongest quakes occurring late Wednesday, according to scientists monitoring the situation.

The swarm of earthquakes is one of the largest ever recorded at the park.

They said there have been 901 quakes in the swarm ranging from 0.5 to 3.8.

They say the swarm is likely the result of a slip in pre-existing faults and not a sign of a potential volcanic eruption. blog it
