I lived inside of the Grand Teton National Park way back in 1996, and even back then we had talk of the caldera underneath Yellowstone blowing and all
of the continuous 48 would be affected and those West of the Mississippi River were definitely the most likely to die; however...
If one was to actually be in say...
Yellowstone, Jackson or the Grand Teton NP then no worries, because that would pretty much mean instantaneous death.
Anytime that one lives over a caldera, the likelihood of death from volcano rises heavily. I would think, but at least you are right on top of it and
you would go out with a very quick flash of light and a really loud bang.
Both of which would probably not even be processed by you, and if they were then you would definitely not have anytime to think about it.
I wouldn't worry about this. It is so not worth it, because it is so out of your control, but I will tell you what is in your control, and that is
how much you worry before you die.
I am not meaning to sound terse and insensitive, but rather the opposite.
Live life when you have it, because it is impossible to know what it is like to not have it.
So live in reality, life. Not fantasy land, death.
It is a lot more fun.
