Even with the scientific denial; there's no way the feds or state government would give advanced warning of an eruption. The size of Yellowstone would mandate an evacuate of possibly millions within weeks if not days; and could possibly cause riots and crimes across the country as our law enforcement; disaster management and military resources are redirected to the area.

I have an idea. How about we drill a deep hole and drop the most powerful nuke we have. The big explosion would destroy the volcano! This is so awesome we could make a movie about it and donate the profits to any potential fallout victims, displaced residents and animals.

Does anyone know how much damage would be caused if Yellowstone had a full eruption? I mean, how much of the United States would be compromised?

If you live near the yellowstone area and fallout predicted area there is nothing from stopping you from loading up your car and moving away. Unless you want to end up like the Pompeii people. I saw that exhibit when it was in Charlotte NC.Life can be started over else where. I know this from being an engineer's daughter/ then married one. I moved 14 times. Moving away yourself is the smart choice. Everyone has had advance knowlegde of their options.
