MOUNT HOOD, Ore. (AP) — Officials say more than two dozen small earthquakes have happened under Mount Hood over the last two days though it’s unlikely they were caused by volcanic activity.

The Oregonian/OregonLive reports starting Monday afternoon, more than 30 small temblors have occurred about a mile northeast of Government Camp, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

The largest was a magnitude 2.1, which officials say was likely too small to be felt.

During the last 20 years, Oregon’s tallest peak has seen a number of small quake swarms, most recently in 2014.
