What will happen if a Hurricane brought all that ocean water and hit yellow stone?

I really want to see it hit Yellowstone. Will it cool the volcano off? No one has ever seem to question it.

Why do you need a hurricane? It snows in Yellowstone. Wouldn't that cool it off?

Then we would loose coastal lands.
Because it would HAVE to move to the middle of the country to do so.

Hurricanes don't usually make it that far inland. Tornado maybe, hurricane no.

I don't think the hurricane and associated rain would last going over the Rocky Mountains. More likely the rain would be dropped on the western side of the range before even making it that far, and it would also really cut the wind for sure.


Its a matter of geography really.

No one ever questions it because it's not possible.
You honestly didnt just ask that right?

If you research Hurricanes in North America you will find that they don't usually make it that far inland

To put that chart another way, no hurricane has ever hit Wyoming and with 96% of YNP being in Wyoming it is literally a non event.

If a hurricane hits Yellow Stone we are in deep deep doo doo.

Perhaps in about a century when the average global temperature has risen about 4 degrees....we may get a CAT 10 Pacific Cyclone that could reach that far. But, I think California would be wiped off the map in the process. Not that it would be a bad thing. Those streets in San Diego would really get cleaned up from that.

Not likely. At all....

Hurricanes, waterspouts, monsoons, typhoons, tropical storms, and tidal waves and tsunamis are water oriented.

Cyclones, tornados, dust storms, whirlwinds and the like are land oriented.

Yellowstone is more than a mile above sea level. That's a little high for a storm surge.

Indeed. Not so much because of Yellowstone though, but because any storm that got that far would be one mother...um...a really bad one. I would not want to be in its way.

*To add to my 1st reply:

Can hurricanes form over land? - c/o answers.com"

"No, they require warm water to form. No hurricanes do not start on land, because a hurricane needs warm water (at least 26C). Also hurricanes need water to easily evaporate, soon the water starts spinning and become a tropical storm, over some days the storm intensifies and becomes a hurricane.

Geography is against it...


"In the eastern Pacific region, one has to go all the way down to the central Mexico coastline to find water warm enough to sustain hurricanes. This warm water lies well within the belt of easterly winds, so almost all the storms that form there move away from the coast, toward the west. By the time those storms recurve, they are usually many thousands of kilometers west of the coast of North America.

"Hurricanes almost always form over ocean water warmer than about 80 degrees F. in a belt of generally east-to-west flow called the trade winds. They move westward with the trade winds and also drift slowly poleward. Eventually, if they last long enough, they will drift poleward far enough to enter the belt of westerly winds that prevails in middle latitudes. When this happens, the hurricanes 'recurve' toward the east and thereafter follow paths that are generally both eastward and poleward.
