I would not be that worried about Lake Toba, even so the area have been seismically active with major earthquakes in 1892, 1916, 1920-1922, and 1987.
And even so it's bigger than the Huckleberry Ridge Tuft at Yellowstone.
If we really want to worry, then let us have a look at Krakatau because there is a pretty vigorous magma source under the volcano. Even as I type,
Anak Krakatau is essentially growing on the periphery of the [ancient] caldera.
There are other volcanoes also that are more interesting than Lake Toba.
Take Mt Vesuvius in Italy, Popocatepetl in Mexico, Merapi in Indonesia, Unzen in Japan, Galeras and Nevado del Huila volcano in Colombia.
Since we have had a "super quake" in Chile, then Chaitén volcano is also worth looking at.
Lastly we have some volcanoes in US worth our attention.
Kìlauea, Hawaii - Mount St. Helens, Washington State - Mount Rainier, Washington State - Mount Hood, Oregon - Mount Shasta, California - South
Sister, Oregon - Lassen, California - Mauna Loa, Hawaii - Redoubt Volcano, Alaska - Crater Lake, Oregon - Mount Baker, Washington State - Glacier
Peak, Washington State - Makushin Volcano, Alaska - Akutan Island, Alaska - Mount Spurr, Alaska - Long Valley caldera, California - Newberry
Crater, Oregon and finally Augustine Island, Alaska
