I've spent the past half hour arguing with a lady who is convinced Yellowstone is getting ready to explode because some website said there was a HUGE earthquake there this morning.

I've tried showing her the seismographs from around the park & explaining that unless you see something happening on ALL of them, it's just "sensor noise." And that NOTHING significant is showing on any of them. She's convinced that every little blip is a sign of impending doom & that put together, they show a "chain" of quakes occurring across the park.

I've tried telling her I've talked to friends in the area who haven't felt anything.

I've tried showing her the USGS sites which show only little 2.4 mag quakes centered near Soda Springs ID and Lincoln MT - nothing in the park.

And she's still convinced that there was a HUGE quake there this morning & that the big girl is ready to blow & the government is covering it up....
