With the 7.2 baja earthquake and people reporting loaud booms in portland nut so big it can be heard all the way in vancouver, Never hearing of this living in portland by the way but also on the other side of the country from another read i thread they had a map if i can find it agian i will put it up.

What do you think?
Its due to erupt soon.

What about all the after shocks in cali as well?
Rather strange

Well I hope it doesn't erupt soon, I'd be one of the first to go. However I suspect they will not tell us anything until it's to late anyhow.

I hope not; especially not at Yellowstone with its super volcano potential. I stayed there in 2008 and it was great; first time visit, but will not be the last, hopefully


I think some experts have predicted that if the big one ever occured
there, Wyoming will be gone, as well as parts of Nebraska, Idaho, and Colorado, with really bad long term effects for the world, climate wise, not to mention of course the loss of lives and property.

Anything is possible but definitely hope the answer is no for at least another 200,000 years or so.

io9.com...

"Now geologists studying the recent mini-quakes in the park say we might be in for a big blast. Such blasts tend to come about once every 600 thousand years, and we haven't seen one for roughly that amount of time.

The last big explosion in Yellowstone, according to Scientific American, was roughly 640 thousand years ago, and it covered about 240 cubic miles in hot ash, scalding rocks, and magma."

scientist say its around the time even past it. the volcano at Iceland was slowly increasing with the amount of earthquakes and after it happened people where saying it was predictible.. now take a look at yellowstone

I have to admit as much as I would hate for it to blow due to the loss of human life and it's effects on the human race as a whole, there is a small part of me that wants it to blow out of curiosity to see what it looks like and how badly it would affect us all.

I wonder if the movie 2012 was close to the mark?

I don't know if it was on mark.. but I think Woody Harrelson's character frequented ATS perhaps.


On topic..
I'm pretty sure we would get somewhat of an advanced warning if it were about to go. We can't stop it, and it's going to happen one day, and it won't be a good thing for humanity. Monitoring is getting better and better though.

We have nothing to fear from the journey..

Yep. More bigger is my guess too.

Yes, more bigger i imagine that to.

I'm pretty sure there will be signs well in advance.. don't get me wrong, it could very well happen, but it's unlikely to happen without some warning.

The point of my post was it will happen.. sooner or later, and it will be devastating, but there is nothing that can be done that will stop that. That is why I say there should be no fear from the journey. Fearing something we can't change is not my cup of tea, however, I can change one thing.. that is to fear or embrace. I choose the later.

Prior to an eruption there will be harmonic temors. Earthquake swarms can indicate activity on the rise but without those harmonics happening there is no eruption. There are many 'signs' to watch for and give people time for evacuation. I hope they are right about this anyway!

That is what I have been trying to say, but some people still think it would just .. well.. happen. I agree, we will have plenty of warning.

by the way.. how is the weather up your way. We are having some amazing lightning shows down my way tonight.

take care.

If Yellowstone has a very big eruption many of us in the western united states won't live to tell about it anyway so the way I look at it is it's kind of like worrying if the sky is falling. I respect anyone's comments on the subject.

I always imagine it being something like this video.

OP, I realize that for those who read about Yellowstone and the potential for the first time, it is tempting to react the exact way that you are. I strongly suggest though that before you get too stresed out about it, do a little more research to educate yourself so you don't have any unecessary sleepless nights!


ATS happens to be a great place to get some of that info. (one of the reasons I started posting here). The above link is to a MASSIVE thread full of everything you need to know to make your head spin.

I will give you a few of my favorite links though to get you started. It can be hard to wade through the other thread, but the first page has a bunch of stuff.

First of all: Yellowstone has been relatively mellow as of late. There is absolutely NO indication that an erruption or event of any sort is going to happen in our lifetime. Here is a current list of quakes:

0.9 2010/05/12 13:33:24 44.730N 111.175W 4.3 9 km ( 6 mi) NW of West Yellowstone, MT
0.9 2010/05/12 05:33:36 44.722N 111.165W 4.1 8 km ( 5 mi) NW of West Yellowstone, MT
2.4 2010/05/12 05:05:23 44.724N 111.164W 5.4 8 km ( 5 mi) NW of West Yellowstone, MT
0.6 2010/05/11 23:55:18 44.597N 110.571W 1.8 43 km (27 mi) E of West Yellowstone, MT
0.9 2010/05/11 21:22:44 44.647N 110.992W 0.9 9 km ( 6 mi) E of West Yellowstone, MT
2.5 2010/05/11 09:31:33 44.592N 110.588W 0.2 42 km (26 mi) E of West Yellowstone, MT
1.4 2010/05/11 07:25:47 44.688N 110.052W 16.4 38 km (23 mi) SSW of Cooke City-Silver Gate, MT
0.2 2010/05/10 06:46:35 44.259N 110.775W 3.5 46 km (29 mi) ENE of Warm River, ID
0.7 2010/05/10 06:15:24 44.750N 111.061W 5.4 10 km ( 6 mi) NNE of West Yellowstone, MT
0.3 2010/05/10 02:44:00 44.560N 110.971W 2.7 16 km (10 mi) SE of West Yellowstone, MT


This is really nothing. The last swarm a couple of months ago generated thousands of quakes, so to not have any for several days is a dry spell for Yellowstone lately.

Remember that earthquakes are only one indicator of an erruption. Yellowstone is a massive ecosystem of interlocked systems. There would most likely be a change in gas emissions, steam emissions, water venting and a number of other things. There is nothing like that going on, so far as I know.

I do not want to discredit your thread, but Yellowstone is a potential 'planet killer', so I just think we should be cautious before we make any claims that it is about to errupt and people should leave the area. The info you posted is nothing new and there is NO indication that there is any change in it's status. Here are some links to help you keep an eye on it, and to perhaps learn her patterns if you are interested.

Seismo thumbnails

Utah seismo quake lsit

USGS quake list

examples of different seismos


Have fun with your monitoring, there is a lot to learn. (A lifetime of it!)

Again, while I agree that she is a beast that needs to be feared and respected, there is no need to panic right now about it. In fact, I am hoping that I will be able to visit the park during the next swarm!!!
