Yellowstone geology remains calm

Amid the earthquake activity in California and volcanic activity in Hawaii, the USGS Yellowstone Volcano Observatory reports earthquake activity in Yellowstone remains at background levels.

The Steamboat geyser did smash records, with seven water eruptions during June. There were no major changes recorded at GPS stations in surface deformation in the Yellowstone area.

There were no significant events recorded in the Yellowstone area Thursday.
