For those of you who wanted to see the show Supervolcano...
it is on the Discovery Channel TONIGHT at 8pm eastern time and again at 11pm eastern time.
I am not quite sure why St. Helens was included in that list. As impressive as the explosion was in 1980 it is dwarfed by more significant events
like Kracatoa, Tambora, Pinatubo, etc. St. Helens was nothing. Yellowstone is a threat but it probably ranks up there with an asteroid impact as
being something that could happen but no likely to in our lifetime. The greatest and more immediate threat comes from Toba. The Toba event from 70k
years ago was bigger than the largest known Yellowstone event. Toba is also a stones throw away from where all these massive quakes have been
happening. This region of the planet is known historically for being explosive. Now you add this kind of activity in the area. It is definately
something of concern. Ask yourself this: What would you be thinking if all these quakes were happening in Wyoming?
