USGS Installs seismometers amid recent Idaho Earthquake Swarm.

Forget about all the Bison, Gerbils, Squirrels and Hippies "Running for their Lives" from the Yellowstone "precursor" tremors.  Most of that is hype or overplayed..
When the scientists are moving this fast, there might be more that is not being reported.
A wise man said: "If the Govt starts digging foxholes, you might want to grab a shovel."
Be Prepared for Earthquakes.  Every Day. Create a Plan.

With Hundreds of earthquakes swarming central Idaho since last month, Idaho's Mount Borah area near Challis has seen the worst of it.
So far.. 
The recent earthquake swarm, beginning on March 24 and climaxed by a 4.9 magnitude tremor on Saturday, has produced no reports of injuries or severe damage but has rattled nerves in a region where Idaho's most powerful known quake, measured at M6.9, killed two children in 1983. 
Saturday's earthquake was the strongest recorded in the state since 2005 and was followed on Monday by a M4.4 event that struck 10 miles north of the small ranching community of Challis, Idaho, according to the U.S. Geological Survey. The Challis tremor knocked pictures and animal mounts from walls, rattled dishes off tables and was felt by residents in neighboring Montana more than 100 miles from the quake's epicenter, officials said. The latest seismic surge, including 100 small to moderate quakes on Monday alone, has galvanized government scientists, who planned to install special seismometers in the area as early as Tuesday to more closely track the activity.
 
"The likelihood of a severe earthquake coming on the heels of the recent swarm is low, but much is perplexing about the series of tremors," said Bill Phillips, a geologist with the Idaho Geological Survey at the University of Idaho. "Such earthquake swarms typically are associated with the movement of molten rock below ground, which geologists credited for the recent quake cluster at Yellowstone National Park, or they are linked to an active fault", he said on Tuesday. "What has many of us scratching our heads is the present-day swarm doesn't appear to be on the big, active fault in the area that ruptured in 1983 and caused the largest earthquake in Idaho," Phillips said. He was referring to the M6.9 that struck Mount Borah, Idaho's tallest peak, killing two children in Challis and damaging hundreds of homes and businesses. Idaho sits at the center of a seismic belt in the inter mountain West that runs from northwestern Montana to southern Nevada and contains thousands of faults in the Earth's crust, said Michael Stickney, director of earthquake studies at the Montana Bureau of Mines and Geology. Carl Alexander, disaster coordinator in Challis, said schools have stepped up earthquake drills, and he has requested that emergency responders in Idaho and Utah be available if disaster strikes. Alexander is advising local residents to keep bottled water and canned goods on hand just in case "a big shaker" should strike.- RSOE/Reuters

IMPORTANT CURRENT EVENTS  - 
 
Blood Moon 2014:
3:06 AM Eastern 12:06 AM Pacific 15.04.2014
With all the hype out there about this being a sign or something bigger, really it is just the first Lunar Eclipse of 2014.
It is Forecasted to be more of a "Dark Orange" Moon, #BloodMoon refers to the color of the Moon when light is refracted around aerosols in the atmosphere.
The April 15th eclipse begins at 2 AM Eastern time when the edge of the Moon first enters the amber core of Earth’s shadow.  Totality occurs during a 78 minute interval beginning around 3 o’clock in the morning on the east coast, midnight on the west coast.  Weather permitting, the red Moon will be easy to see across the entirety of North America. 
 "For people in the United States, an extraordinary series of lunar eclipses is about to begin.
The action starts on April 15th when the full Moon passes through the amber shadow of Earth, producing a midnight eclipse visible across North America. So begins a lunar eclipse tetrad — a series of 4 consecutive total eclipses occurring at approximately six month intervals.  The total eclipse of April 15, 2014, will be followed by another on Oct. 8, 2014, and another on April 4, 2015, and another on Sept. 28 2015.
"The most unique thing about the 2014-2015 #tetrad is that all of them are visible for all or parts of the USA," says longtime NASA eclipse expert Fred Espenak.

#wippincident Update:
#radwatch

AP, Apr 4, 2014: Workers are prepared to encounter contamination [&] will try to figure out what caused [WIPP's] mysterious leak [of radiation that] contaminated 21 workers […] [No one's been] underground [...] to find the source of the leak and determine if [the fire & radiation] are related.
Nuclear Hotseat #145, with host Libbe HaLevy, M.A., Apr. 1, 2014:
5:15 in — Don Hancock, director of the Nuclear Waste Safety program and administrator at Southwest Research and Information Center: Data from what’s being captured [...] and what comes out of the filters, is that there have been continuing releases 24/7 […] There still is contamination coming out of the underground […] Numbers move around, but there’s always some amount of radioactivity in the underground air and lesser amounts being vented to the environment. Why it happened, why it was released, how much was really released, how much contamination there is in the underground, how long the releases continue, whether there could be further releases given that we don’t know what the situation is [...] All of those of things are unknowns.

WIPP workers re-enter underground for first time since radiation leak
