Even I thought that was a silly comparison and weather is only a hobby for me.
Stick around through the summer. Tropical season is just beginning.

That's not what I've read about Oklahoma and other places, but okay.

Are you going to believe anecdotes or science? Your choice.


Anecdotes?

I'll believe the science I've read.

What about the science I posted? Where is your science, by the way?

America, especially California, keeps coming up as where the 'Big One' will occur. However, Califi, doesn't register on the list of some of the top earthquakes since we have been recording them.

Largest Earthquakes in the World since 1900

Although we are told it is overdue, it would appear the West Coast of South America and Alaska would be prime candididates.

I don't want to even think what would happen if the 'Big One' hit Yellowstone.

No one can prepare for a catastrophic event. Well, yes, prepare, but to be able to mitigate it or to prevent it, just not going to happen, especially in large population areas


Here is another good resource USGS
USGS Map of Current Earthquakes

Looks like the West Coast of South America, Indonesia are having some heavy activity......glad to see Iran getting some action as well.

Yellowstone is a super volcano not an earthquake fault line.
If it goes it's an ELE.
Kiss everything good bye.

LOL after I typed the word "super" above my kindle autofill offered delegates as the next word. Guess that says what forums I'm in most.


If Yellowstone alone blew, it wouldn't be an extinction level event.
Life would continue, unless mankind made it so it wouldn't be through wars of hunger and supply. If Yellowstone blew, the soybeans and corn of this planet for the most part are gone and buried under a foot or two of ash, for the most part.
Sure the population of the planet would be reduced overnight and for a decade or two afterwards, but not extinction of the human race anyway. But there I go placing man above all others...yes, the myriad species of the planet would see an eradication as well. But Life wants to live and will find a way.

Not Yellowstone, Yellowstone is a caldera. Basically yellowstone park sits inside a giant volcano.....quite high up as well as I found out when a trekked to the top of a mountain out breathe wondering "why" since I was as fit as fiddle. Turns out my car was parked on the road at a height higher than a Munro which puts an odd image in your head!

(oops sorry, a Munro is the name for any Scottish mountain higher than 3000ft and typically a lot wetter than Yellowstone)

You are correct Lucidity. And Krazyshot is also technically correct.
It isn't so much the actual fracking, as it is the high-pressure injection of fracking waste fluids into deep wells. That is what is thought to primarily be the cause of the Kansas and Oklahoma earthquakes.
Krazyshot's source states the same:

Hydraulic fracturing, often called fracking, also can cause earthquakes, but is much less of a factor than wastewater injection wells, Rubinstein said.


Here is a link to the USGS page on induced quakes.

As to the article in the OP, complete junk, lol. I think it has the San Andreas fault (maximum magnitude believed to be M8.1 to 8.3) confused with the Cascadia Subduction zone (maximum M9.0+). I'm not sure what "tremors" they are referring to.
The ETS (episodic tremor and slip) under Cascadia? Quiet....here is a link to the real-time monitor

There haven't been any super volcano eruptions during historic times. Or any of the biggest possible anyway.
We have geologic evidence of eruptions that were enormous in the prehistoric time frame and man did survive them.
But who'd want to??

Thanks, yup, you are exactly correct. My bad. Thanks for the correction. But if Yellowstone were to blow......OMG, I wonder if an earthquake could induce that? Peace

Yup, you are right, it is a volcano, my bad. I guess I've been watching to much of Nat Geo...lol. Pretty funny about your SUPER autofill.

This is how Ca once looked along the coast, things can change there are 100's of faults in many directions.

I'm of the opinion few,if any nations could handle a catastrophe of that magnitude.Also pretty sure by the time the experts figured out it was the big one,it would be too late for any kind of evacuation.

You wouldn't be able to type anything if those people gave up.
I know I'd want to survive. And most of the world with me. It might not be pretty, but I'd give it a go.

Well, since you've asked, I've read almost all of these: [Link]

In addition, not to stray off topic, but I have a theory that depleting the water tables, as in sending the groundwater into middle earth, is affecting water sources and causing some of the droughts as well. And where water holds up some fault lines it may not be anymore.

The earth is a delicate balance that we may have messed with too much.

Thanks. Kind of goes to my theory above. They're shooting water deep where it may not come back. And the whole earth feels the ripple effect.

I will ALWAYS take any earthquake doom porn with a grain of salt

There’s that, and then there’s the fact that I wouldn’t even wipe my arse with the Daily Star.

I get the USGS worldwide reports of earthquakes. I had to set my bar at 6.0 and above, or I would get a constant flow of notifications in my inbox.

IMO, it's a probability cloud of sorts; certainly eventually certain faults will create a horrific quake. The Yellowstone caldera is thought by some to be overdue. If that one goes, it will likely be a terrible, world-changing event.

I tend to scoff a tad at precise predictions of doom. I think it will happen sometime, but what I don't believe is that we humans have the tools to accurately predict when that doom will occur.

Still, I enjoy reading threads like this, because it reminds me to check my preps and I think to myself, "will it happen in my lifetime?" I don't know, but I wouldn't doubt it at all. Prepare for the worst. Hope for the best. Get your stuff together. It surely can't hurt.

Regarding the link of the OP, well, my sense of it is that they tend toward hyperbole, but that doesn't mean there isn't a grain of truth ever.

Yellowstone wouldn't be quite that bad, but it would be bad. Certainly life in the US would cease to exist as we know it and there would be world-wide famines and climate disruptions for some time. But it would not be an ELE like Deep Impact.

Look at what happened when Tambora blew up. Yellowstone could be more explosive, but most likely wouldn't and might even just be a small, localized eruption if it did decide to erupt. Those kinds of eruptions have happened there too.

They are only saying what a lot of us are thinking - seems like a big one is overdue.

Not a good outlook for west coast people.

I think the next "big" one is going to be off the coast of BC and the Seattle area.
