The last massive earthquake in Yellowstone National Park claimed the lives of 28 people and created a whole new lake. An eruption of a supervolcano like the one at Yellowstone could render significant part of the US uninhabitable for years and threaten life on the whole planet. Over 200 tremors have struck the Yellowstone supervolcano

This was sent in – it is of interest to Yellowstone quake watchers ….
I’m watching the Rattlesnake Ridge near Yakima, Washington right now. Estimated 4-10 million cubic yards of hillside slipping at 1.6 feet/week. There is highway below and the Yakima River. A lady is giving daily updates with pictures.
Watch “Rattlesnake Ridge Update January 21, 2018.” on u tube….
“Scientists don’t think Yellowstone’s supervolcano would be erupting any time soon (at least not in the next thousand years). The odds of it erupting within a given year are one in 730,000, according to the US Geological Survey.So if you’re planning a trip there, you shouldn’t be too concerned.
If it did erupt, it could have some pretty extreme effects on the surrounding areas….” – – – blah, blah, blah go back to sleep. So it looks like these quake swarms are just normal andthe volcano being way overduefor another blow is off the table for discussion by the press.
“pretty extreme effects” is a mild way of putting it.
