Post subject:  Disappearing Earthquakes

There have been so many EQ's lately that have either been "disappeared" off the USGS list, or downgraded, that I thought they deserve their own thread.

There was a 4.0 EQ in Wyoming today, Dutchsinse posted it on FB. When I saw it 45 min. later, and went to the link to look, IT WAS GONE!! (Sorry for yelling but WTH!!) Other people too posted that it had disappeared. The message on the page where it had been: "Oops! — File Not Found (404)"

Here is the screenshot of the info as posted by Dutch:

He also said that there is fracking a mile from the epicenter, as well as it being just about 40 - 60 miles from Yellowstone. Just sayin'
