Umm, not to intrude, but how do you make the jump from salt deposit to supervolcano?
Where is there evidence for a magma chamber under there? Evidence for salt, yes...but evidence of a magma chamber? Where?

If it was a volcano of any sort, much less a super volcano, relief wells would do absolutely nothing.
This is a sink hole resulting from the subtraction of materials below the surface, from a salt dome, where the surface then loses stability and subducts/collapses.
Certainly there may be some hazardous materials involved, but, the geology going on here is entirely different.
There's no magma chamber for one.
No volcano; regular, super, or otherwise.

Yer Volcano effect is from the millon gallons of BUTANE stored not far from the sinkhole in the same salt deposit !!!
If those bubbles are Butane and not methane, then theres big boom commin...no super volcano just a big dirty bomb bigger than any yet....nuke waste s also stored near by in the same places....
One hell of a burp making a 100 hiroshima nuke explosion
if it happen .. we will surely have 3 days of darkness
a super volcano presence would explain florida itself
