Yellowstone volcano: 1,217 earthquakes hit Yellowstone in 2019 - Is the volcano awakening? 1

“For the first time in several years, there was no significant uplift in the Yellowstone area during 2019.

“The caldera continued to subside, as it has since 2015, and the area around Norris Geyser Basin transitioned from no deformation to subsidence in September 2019.”

Steamboat geyser has, however, broken the record for the most eruptions in a single year.

With three eruptions in December, Steamboat tallied 48 blasts in 2019, breaking the record of 32 eruptions in 2018.

Yellowstone has had three major eruptions in its history, with the most recent blast about 640,000 years ago.
