"Geologists had little warning before Mount Saint Helens's last major eruption. A small earthquake was recorded on March 20, 1980, followed a week later by a minor eruption. But the ground continued to tremble, and six weeks later, on Sunday, May 18, 1980, the mountain exploded in one of the most spectacular eruptions in recent memory."

Yellowstone by comparison rarely goes a week without an earthquake. Sometimes it has 200+ tremors a day. A recent graph posted here showed the increase in swarms over the years and the trend was startling. Hopefully the precursor to a major eruption is more obvious than 100's of earthquakes continuously over a few days because that's already been seen.

You make a really good point. I think that a whole lot was learned by Helen's erruption. I lived in Yakima, Washington during the erruption and is probably the main reason I have such an interest in volcanology. The 30 year anniversary is in two days BTW.

They really didn't have much at the site of the Mountain prior to that erruption and have since (ofcourse) added a vast network to the whole volcanic chain in the PNW. HERE is a link to the Pacific Northwest Seismic Newtork seismographs for said Mountains. A fun way to pass your time!

The real issue with Yellowstone is our lack of history. Yellowstone is a massive caldera, and we little recorded history of what we can expect to see when she goes. I already mentioned what is thought will happen....and it all makes sense. There is always that possibility that it could be sudden, but unlikely. I personally think there will be all kinds of signs, especially with the amount of people and equipment watching. I think we are much more likely to see a smaller event in our lifetime, rather than a full-out caldera erruption.

To to add to the doom and gloom, but I found this rather disturbing.

I saw a recent show on the Doomsday channel (History channel) where they were talking about Yellowstone (again) this one was one i hadn't seen.. I have seen at least one other History special on yellowstone's sleeping giant.

This one mentioned that the ground is monitored for rising effects.

It also mentioned a ferry that used to go around 20 -40 years ago, that used to take people on tours.. It had caught fire some time ago and sank to the bottom of one of the more shallow lakes, but recently it has been becoming visible again, rising from the bottom of the lake/pond. The rangers explained that the ground was rising, and pushing the ship's gutted remains up above water-line again. (I do not know how deep the water was at the time of the sinking, or at the current time of the video showing the remains of the ship.)

I will look for further information on this tomorrow (Monday the 17th)

Yellowstone Is the largest of the Super Volcano on this planet. If it erupts nothing can save us. All mankind will be destroyed.. and it's long over due. So there is no need to worry about it happening. Only thing you could do is migrate to another planet. Since that's not possible, no use worrying about it.
