Good Ole ATS Doom porn, backed by USGS facts.

This is something I've been keeping my eye on, call it intuition, or gut feeling, but Yellowstone, or adjacent parks have been having abnormal activity lately, and I've posted threads a few months ago, in regards to those areas.

Interesting to see the Very High assessment areas as well.

Full Official report and PDF is available here Links and Abstract USGS Report is Here

2018 USGS Volcano Threat Level Assessment PDF Report


Threat of Yellowstone Volcano Eruption Increases to ‘High,’ Says USGS


It's been awhile since they did an update, but now we can see where the threat assessments are currently, based on new data.


The U.S. Geological Survey said that it is classifying 18 volcanoes in the United States as having a “very high threat,” and it classified the Yellowstone volcano in Wyoming as “high.” The USGS updated its volcano threat assessments list for the first time since 2006.


Take a look at the PDF for more detailed info on Very high areas to low.



It added: “The high- and moderate-threat categories are dominated by Alaskan volcanoes. In these categories, the generally more active and more explosive volcanoes in Alaska can have a substantial effect on national and international aviation, and large eruptions from any of the moderate- to very-high-threat volcanoes could cause regional or national-scale disasters” Threat scores rose for Oregon’s Newberry Volcano as well as Wyoming’s Yellowstone. The Yellowstone caldera is listed as “high” by the USGS. There are 161 active volcanoes in the U.S.

Well Im no volcano expert, but from what I read in the linked report, and also at USGS.gov, it is not an " alert" level, but a threat level based on many criteria such as location to populace etc. Nowhere did I read that a chance of eruption was any greater.

That would really validate the ramlbings of all the grand solar minimum theorist out there

Yeah you're right, they've just done a revised threat level assessment which is based on the projected threat if a volcano erupts. What baffles me is how they considered Yellow Stone to only be a 'moderate' level threat prior to this assessment, and still only a 'high' level threat now - considering they have a 'very high' threat level. I would have thought Yellow Stone would top the list.

If we have the ATS Quake experts, and Volcano gurus on, it would sure be nice to hear your opinions on this info.

Actually I saw this posted somewhere else about an hour and a half ago, and then saw your post when I showed up here for my bedtime fix. Read through it for about 45 mins along with searching for any other sources or reports.

Agreed. I was also curious as to how it did not qualify as the top tier.

Someone had posted either on ATS, or similar about USGS seismic reports being wiped a few times. I was trying to verify it, but I couldn't see the cross-ref data, so I left it alone.

I don't think it's going to blow, but even if that area increases in activity, it will cause serious issues, or quakes in the surrounding areas, imo. That's why I've been watching.

Yeah, like I said I’m no volcanologist, but I am one of those crazy prepper people so I’m active in some related online forums. When I first saw the news I immediately started looking around, while simultaneously wondering why I hadn’t dug my bunker yet.

If that area starts to Rock n Roll, a bunker is the last place to be.

Mother-Earth can humble even the toughest, and make the most unaware people, wake the heck up fast.

Yeah the bunker comment was in humor, I’m not a mole. We do have a tornado shelter, but I couldn’t stand that for more than a few hours.I am near the TN/NC border at the foot of the Smokys. Don’t know if that will help in the long term, but well out of the projected immediate kill zone.

Yellowstone will not erupt for at least 30 years, yea even after the wars. When it does, it will be sadly bad.

Whew! Well that’s great news! Maybe I will see 80 after all, that is if I don’t die in the wars your talking about.

I can tell you this, if you are not east of the mississippi river, chances are you will retreat or defend across there. Mississipi river is our line for our next civil war. Yellowstone will be fine, now for a few smaller hidden volcanoes in those wars I can not say.

threat level -6 down here in south florida. a volcano might blow up at some point in the next 600,000 years... try surfing in a category 4 hurricane

I was just thinking the same thing. I was thinking just the two facts; that Yellowstone is active, and that Yellowstone is a super volcano, should give Yellowstone a very high threat level.

Well I am E of the Mighty Mississippi, now as far as those few small hidden volcanos In the war you speak of, are they weaponized or something?

From the .pdf linked:


The updated national volcanic threat assessment presented here is not a forecast or indication of which volcanoes are most likely to erupt next. Rather, it is an indicator of the potential severity of impacts that may result from future eruptions at any given volcano. As such, the assessment can be used to help guide and prioritize volcano research, hazard assessment, emergency planning and preparation, and monitoring efforts by Federal, state, and local government.


Pretty much what SituationNAFU stated.
