Wow...! So this means that we may have 2 potentially dangerous areas in the US east coast: The New Madrid fault and now this super volcanoe which is said to be building from underneath Vermont, New Hampshire, and Masachussetts.



Something unexpected has been gradually making itself known to geologists in the United States. A huge mass of molten rock is creeping upwards beneath the nation’s north eastern states. “The upwelling we detected is like a hot-air balloon, and we infer that something is rising up through the deeper part of our planet under New England,” says Rutgers University geophysicist Professor Vadim Levin. Traces of the brooding mass only became evident through a large-scale new seismic study. The idea that there may be a super volcano brewing under Massachusetts, Vermont and New Hampshire is something of a surprise.


A new super-volcanoe...? In the Eastern US? While the article doesn't give an ETA, I'm guessing a couple years till ka-bloouey! What says ATS

Love the doom porn, however, from your source.



“It will likely take millions of years for the upwelling to get where it’s going,”

“Come back in 50 million years, and we’ll see what happens.”

How about what geologists say? The paper was written last year.

New England residents don’t need to panic. The upwelling is likely tens of millions of years old, which would make it a relatively recent development in geological terms, and it’s moving very slowly. For now, it certainly hasn’t gotten close enough to the surface to shape New England’s geography or create a volcano.

Awe the voice of reason, where were you when Al Gore predicted we'd be under water by now, and No we're not sending man to Mars by 2020...

How do they figure out "super" volcano, instead of just a volcano? I always thought that was due to the size of the eruption...❓

I missed that little detail. Thanks!

Thanks, Phage. I guess I rushed this news to ATS.

Being a New Englander, I was relieved to hear this. Whew!

Yeah. You guys have it easy.

Except for that snow and stuff.

Snow we can handle. LOL
I am thankful that I live in a rather safe place.

I think I'd rather deal with snow...

Having had to deal with both a volcano, Mt. St. Helens here in Washington, and Mt. Akutan, in Alaska, and, of course, snow every year... I'll take the snow, frankly.

St. Helens scared the crap outta me. Mt. Akutan got my attention, too.

Just sayin'.

Holy Cow!! When did they move the New Madrid Fault to the East coast and who authorized the move? Inquiring minds want to know.

Nothing to do with New Madrid.

So they didn't move it? Whew....for a minute there I thought I could cancel my earthquake insurance.

The New Madrid isn't quite East coast but in the ballpark. It's more of a centralized location to the East coast and the Mid-West.
