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?
