I first heard this on a youtube video but I honestly thought the vid was over the top with fear porn so I just stuck it in my Humm file. There is a pretty good older movie about Yellowstone that I will post if I can find it about the politics of an evacuation of the surround areas.

Nothing maybe, or maybe more than we are aware of; unfortunately I do not know and I doubt others in the know know either. hahah

An ongoing earthquake swarm at Yellowstone volcano is now one of the biggest ever recorded, with over 2,300 tremors since it began in June.

As of August 30, 2,357 earthquakes had been recorded. The most powerful in recent weeks was magnitude 3.3; it took place on August 21.

The most powerful in the current swarm was a magnitude 4.4, which was recorded on June 15.
The movie is actually pretty good as far as the events and politics leading up to an eruption.

Maybe a super volcano eruption will be enough to stop Hurricane Irma?

Jamie Farrell, a research professor at the University of Utah, which is involved in monitoring seismic activity at Yellowstone, told Newsweek that the swarm was “nothing out of the ordinary” and that it had “slowed down significantly but does occasionally have little bursts of activity that lasts for a few hours.”

Still, the ongoing swarm is now one of the longest and largest on record. The largest swarm ever recorded was in October 1985; it lasted for three months and included more than 3,000 earthquakes. There was another large swarm in 2010, when more than 2,000 events were recorded over a month.

Thousands of earthquakes take place at Yellowstone every year. Swarms are when numerous earthquakes take place over the course of weeks or months, with no clear sequence of main earthquakes and aftershocks. They do not, as normal earthquakes sometimes do, signal an eruption is forthcoming.

A book the governments of the world DO NOT want you to read:

Catastrophe: An Investigation into the Origins of Modern Civilization

18 months of darkness

30 years of unprecedented drought and flooding

Krakatoa was her name.

A.D. 535

Only if the lava flows from the massive eruption destroy the secret HAARP facilities in Montana.

The way I see it, no matter if Yellowstone erupts or not, we won't manage to survive a mega-volcano eruption in the U.S.A.. Far too many people are more concerned with fighting amongst themselves.

Everyone will be too busy arguing over who caused it.
The left or the right.

And I'll be sitting here with my whisky.

The Hopi and others who were saved from the Great Flood made a sacred covenant with the Great Spirit never to turn away from him. He made a set of sacred stone tablets, called Tiponi, into which he breathed his teachings, prophecies, and warnings. Before the Great Spirit hid himself again, he placed before the leaders of the four different racial groups four different colors and sizes of corn; each was to choose which would be their food in this world. The Hopi waited until last and picked the smallest ear of corn. At this, the Great Spirit said:

"It is well done. You have obtained the real corn, for all the others are imitations in which are hidden seeds of different plants. You have shown me your intelligence; for this reason I will place in your hands these sacred stone tablets, Tiponi, symbol of power and authority over all land and life to guard, protect, and hold in trust for me until I shall return to you in a later day, for I am the First and I am the Last."

"This is the Eight Sign: You will see many youth, who wear their hair long like my people, come and join the tribal nations, to learn their ways and wisdom."

At least I can still make fire with sticks. I will be useful to those with short hair and Abercrombie sweaters. Little do they know, all the corn syrup and MSG have made them quite tasty.

It could very well make Hurricane Irma irrelevant.

I can't find it now, but I seem to remember reading something about massive eruptions and then the emergence of divergent genus within an "evolutionary significant" time period.

Could be dreaming it up, but its an interesting subject. It would seem likely that a long-term, massive change in environment would precipitate change elsewhere.

Thanks for the book rec!

As for Yellowstone.. Its such an immense system that its hard to tell what its doing sometimes. Its probably going to blow eventually, but in the meantime it can still be the cause of serious local events.

Four hours ago according to USGS(here) the biggest of the quakes today in the location 17km east of Soda Springs, Idaho, a M5.3 magnitude.

Member here - shared about Yellowstone activity along with that.
