3.2 Southern California, Some Shaking at Yellowstone, And The Latest Cyclone Donna, And Cyclone Mora Landfall Info!!! Plus This Weeks"Earthquake Minute"!!!

UPDATE: Severe Tropical Cyclone Mora "Earthquake Minute" The Video From The Studio!!! CLICK Arrow: And you can watch at YouTube, Too@ And The Transcript is@ NOW Fridays Edition of EQ Blog:

At almost press time Yellowstone started shaking all of the sudden and it seems likely this might also be the beginning and end of the shaking there, but I suppose we might keep watching just the same. Times are all Central Time:

0.6 14km NNW of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-06-01 21:49
2.6 27km ENE of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-06-01 21:29
2.2 28km ENE of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-06-01 21:27
0.5 9km NNW of West Yellowstone, Montana 2017-06-01 02:00

So at the top of this line which illustrates where Cyclone Donna traveled in between New Caladonia/Loyalty Islands and Vanuatu at the very top, you can sort of get an idea exactly the direction it was traveling and this is the line which if followed would theoretically end at France!!! Further checking has just now revealed that at least Caladonia Island is on the Indio/Aust. Tectonic Plate and so an update on what all that means will be coming, here's that illustration:

Here's the most notable earthquake that I just quick located one to have something to post here, albeit with not too much else happening save for a good amount of garden variety shaking at Oklahoma but not a lot more than usual, here's one from Southern California a town near the Salton Sea:

3.2 - 27km WSW of Westmorland, CA
2017-06-01 15:19:14 UTC

Nearby Places:
16.8 Miles WSW of Westmorland, CA
17 Miles Southeast of Ocotillo Wells, CA
21 Miles WNW of Imperial, CA
24 Miles WNW of El Centro, CA

And here's the felt report from Westmorland, although I might need to update this later on Friday:

3.2 - 27km WSW of Westmorland, CA
2017-06-01 15:19:14 UTC

Temecula, CA 92591 United States of America....1....128 km
Scottsdale, AZ 85258 United States of America..1....379 km
Bakersfield, CA 93309 United States of America.1....392 km

So, I did have some really good places that I tracked the resultant from landfall of Cyclone Donna, too. . . but I will now have to be adding some more due to discovering the location WHERE it made landfall is on a different tectonic plate all together than I first thought! And there IS an update on all that in the now posted above "Earthquake Minute" from Friday, too!!! Thank-You Again For Reading and Have Great Weekend, Everybody!!! EQ Guy
