Yellowstone volcano: Total of 292 earthquakes rock US supervolcano in a single month

The US park is typically struck by about 1,500 to 2,500 earthquakes each year and 2020 has not been out of the norm.

The USGS said: “In fact, 2020 was the third year in a row with less than 2000 located earthquakes.”

December also saw two eruptions of the world-famous Steamboat Geyser on December 11 and 20, respectively.

In total, the geyser has erupted 48 times last year, equalling 2019 for the number of eruptions.

None of this, of course, is evidence of worrying activity at the supervolcano.
