Seismographs have picked up a swarm of earthquakes near Yellowstone National Park. The University of Utah Seismograph Station reported five small earthquakes including those with magnitudes of 3.4, 2.7 and 3.2 in a 20-minute period starting at 3:33am Tuesday in an area 16 to 18 miles south of Gardiner.
