Is the big one coming ?
Yellowstone is like the old dragon that wakes from its ancient slumber
Scientist say its long overdue for a blowout
The dragon awakes

super volcano could be on the brink of erupting - which would cause widespread destruction.

Yellowstone has been unusually active, hit with more than 878 earthquakes in just over TWO WEEKS





Strongest earthquake of 4.4 magnitude hit on Thursday 15 June This could be a warning sign of an impending eruption of the supervolcano If it did erupt, it would be one thousand times as powerful as Mount St Helens

Yes, I am most concerned.

Any minute now up to 50,000 years... I'm waiting in anticipation...

That does seem high- I was under the impression there were generally 1000 - 3000 a year around there.

On the other hand, an earthquake is releasing tension- I'd be more worried if it went quiet for a while

Here is something to refer to from the National Park Service


Yellowstone commonly experiences “earthquake swarms”—a series of earthquakes over a short period of time in a localized area.

The largest swarm occurred in 1985, with more than 3,000 earthquakes recorded during three months on the northwest side of the park.

Hundreds of quakes were recorded during swarms in 2009 (near Lake Village) and 2010 (between Old Faithful area and West Yellowstone). Scientists interpret these swarms as due to shifting and changing pressures in the Earth’s crust that are caused by migration of hydrothermal fluids, a natural occurrence of volcanoes. Earthquakes help us to map and to understand the sub-surface geology around and beneath Yellowstone. The energy from earthquakes travels through hard and molten rock at different rates. Scientists can “see” the subsurface and make images of the magma chamber and the caldera by “reading” the seismic waves emitted during earthquakes. An extensive geological monitoring system is in place to aid in that interpretation.

On March 30, 2014 at 6:34 am Mountain Daylight Time, an earthquake of magnitude 4.8 occurred four miles north-northeast of Norris Geyser Basin. The M4.8 earthquake was reported felt in Yellowstone National Park, in the towns of Gardiner and West Yellowstone, Montana and throughout the region. This is the largest earthquake at Yellowstone since the early 1980s and was part of a notable GPS- determined uplift episode of 3 cm at Norris that built up in the 4 months prior to the quake. The area returned to subsidence in the following 4 months. Analysis of the earthquake indicated a tectonic origin and was part of a sequence of earthquake swarms located north and northwest of Norris that began in Sept. 2013. Notably, the M4.8 event occurred at the same time that the Yellowstone caldera began to experience increased uplift rates up to +6 cm/yr, among the highest of the Yellowstone caldera uplift in modern history.

The latest EQ is rather strong, historically speaking. Flurries of quakes happen.
I will start worrying if there is uplift connected with telltale signs of magma movement.

It's interesting, because the last earthquake of this magnitude was 4.8, in 2014, and before that there hadn't been a comparable quake in over 30 years.

So, it might make eruption imminent in geological terms, but not necessarily in human terms. Yellowstone could twitch and fidget for another five centuries without ever coming even remotely close to 'getting off the pot'.

Then again, it could go up tomorrow. Who knows?

It's only right that once things start falling into place for me, that all hell break loose in the world.

Bring it on Yellowstone.

what we need is a very big quark! Can we just move Yellowstone to the cern facility? That'd be great! Oh, better idea, can we move it to bohemiam grove during there religious cult ceremony in july and make it blow!

This is the thread that kept me lurking before I joined; What's going on at Yellowstone?

Could be, should be, would be, Yellowstone has been at it for a while now, and we are still here waiting.

Fact is if that thing blows it's a "So long and thanx for all the fish" scenario because the amount of ash and debris flung in to the atmosphere will drop global temperatures for quite sometime. Que mass famine and the starvation and demise of a significant percentage of our race really.

Sorts trump out, gets rid of the epicenter of the SJW and BLM movement, will solve global warming.....


Seems like win/win......except we lose poor canada

I joined specifically because of that thread. It was sooooooo good and had me obsessed for a long time. I'm back now only because I was hoping for the same group of folks giving us a play by play of the current swarm.

I like how epic it would look on earth destroying everything in its huge path but if you were in space watching it'd look like just another earth fart!

Yellowstone won't do it. Know how I know? 'Cause no balls.

I'm ready for it to go. It's interesting to me that there hasn't been a supervolcano disaster movie yet. They've done all the other big ones: meteors, the earth's core shutting down, aliens, uh, meteors. Lots of meteor movies. No supervolcanos. Hmm.

I suspect man-made climate change.
