Is it possible that the Yellowstone supervolcano is gearing up for a major eruption? If you follow my work on a regular basis, then you already know that I spend a lot of time documenting how the crust of our planet is becoming increasingly unstable. Most of this shaking is taking place far away from the continental United States, and so most Americans are not too concerned about it. But we should be concerned about it, because a major seismic event could change all of our lives in a single instant. For instance, a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would have the potential of being an E.L.E. (extinction level event). That is why it is so alarming that there have been 296 earthquakes in the vicinity of the Yellowstone supervolcano within the last 7 days. Scientists are trying to convince us that everything is going to be okay, but there are others that are not so sure.

 

The biggest earthquake in this swarm occurred last Thursday evening. It was initially measured to be a magnitude 4.5 earthquake, but it was later downgraded to a 4.4. It was the biggest quake in the region since a magnitude 4.8 earthquake struck close to Norris Geyser Basin in March 2014. This magnitude 4.4 earthquake was so powerful that people felt it as far away as Bozeman

The main quake was centered about 5.8 miles underground.

The quake and aftershocks occurred just over 8 miles northeast from West Yellowstone, according to the U.S. Geological Service.

A witness reported that she felt the building she was in move.

Dozens of people reported that they felt it in and around West Yellowstone, Gardiner, Ennis, and Bozeman.

But by itself that one quake would only be of minor concern. What is troubling many of the experts is that this earthquake has been accompanied by 295 smaller ones.

There is normally a rise in seismic activity before a volcano erupts, and according to theoretical physicist Michio Kaku, a long overdue eruption at Yellowstone could “rip the guts out of the USA”

Scientists currently believe that there’s a 10% chance that a “supervolcanic Category 7 eruption” could take place this century, as pointed out by theoretical physicist Michio Kaku who appeared on a segment for Fox News.

The grey haired physicist told Shepard Smith that the “danger” we are now facing with the caldera is that it’s long overdue for an eruption which Kaku said could “rip the guts out of the USA.”

Kaku said that a “pocket of lava” located under the park has turned out to be twice as big as scientists originally thought.

I would like to try to describe for you what a full-blown eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano would mean for this country.

Hundreds of cubic miles of ash, rock and lava would be blasted into the atmosphere, and this would likely plunge much of the northern hemisphere into several days of complete darkness. Virtually everything within 100 miles of Yellowstone would be immediately killed, but a much more cruel fate would befall those that live in major cities outside of the immediate blast zone such as Salt Lake City and Denver.

Hot volcanic ash, rock and dust would rain down on those cities literally for weeks. In the end, it would be extremely difficult for anyone living in those communities to survive. In fact, it has been estimated that 90 percent of all people living within 600 miles of Yellowstone would be killed.

Experts project that such an eruption would dump a layer of volcanic ash that is at least 10 feet deep up to 1,000 miles away, and approximately two-thirds of the United States would suddenly become uninhabitable. The volcanic ash would severely contaminate most of our water supplies, and growing food in the middle of the country would become next to impossible.

In other words, it would be the end of our country as we know it today.

The rest of the planet, and this would especially be true for the northern hemisphere, would experience what is known as a “nuclear winter”. An extreme period of “global cooling” would take place, and temperatures around the world would fall by up to 20 degrees. Crops would fail all over the planet, and severe famine would sweep the globe.

In the end, billions could die.

So yes, this is a threat that we should take very seriously.

But today, most Americans think of Yellowstone as little more than a fun tourist attraction. But the truth is that many tourists have discovered just how dangerous Yellowstone can be. Some have been scalded by boiling water from geysers that can get as hot as 250 degrees Fahrenheit, and one man from North Carolina recently had to be flown to a burn center after he mistakenly fell into a hot spring

A North Carolina man was flown to the University of Utah Burn Center after falling into a hot spring at Yellowstone National Park late Tuesday night.

Gervais Dylan Gatete, 21, was with seven other people in the Lower Geyser Basin north of Old Faithful when he fell, according to a park news release.

The group attempted to transport Gatete, an employee with Xanterra Parks and Resorts, by car for medical treatment. Just before midnight, they flagged down a park ranger near Seven Mile Bridge on the West Entrance Road.

Since Yellowstone is still very active, scientists assure us that it will erupt again one day.

And when that happens, all of our lives will be completely turned upside down in a single moment.

    And when it blows the media will blame Trump.

      Wish I could give you more than 1 upvote. In fact, I vote yours comment of the day! Wait, no, week! I would laugh, but it’s not actually a joke. It’s true.

      • joanofark06

        So you support Trump, when I have 4 different articles from all different websites (even WP), that say he’s bringing in thousands of more muslims. When Yellowstone puts this country into never never land, and your not dead, you will be…

        • cloudslicer

          ‘even WP (washington post)’ ;)

          fake news.

          • joanofark06

            See above…

        • justsayin’

          WP? You’re using them as a source? Is that another one of their Pulitzer prize pieces of fiction? How funny that you would boast about using them as a source.

          • joanofark06

            I put WP in there, because most people don’t want to believe anything from “alternative” sites……so that was just a case of,…if someone only believes articles, from so called “mainstream” news.
            I only like my articles from alternate sources myself! I’m not boasting about WP, just trying to show people that the articles about Trump bringing in thousands of muslims, still…is coming from BOTH sources…alternative, and mainstream! You misunderstood me…but it’s ok…:)

          • justsayin’

            Ok. Gotcha. Agree.

        • Kathryn O’Connor

          you’re. we speak English in this country. use proper grammar

          • Tom Kovacs

            Oh look a loser leftard that goes for the Grammar card ,…. There their they’re it will be OK

        • Zoe

          Haven’t the courts been stopping Trump every step of the way from reducing and ending the flow from major terrorist countries? Just to help you out the answer is yes.

        • justsayin’

          Joan, please. He’s not “bringing” in any muslims. He’s trying to stop them, but the courts seem to think we need some London and Paris style terrorism here.

          When Yellowstone blows, I will not be here, as I will either be with the Lord or dying, as I am within the kill zone. And for the record, I support my President.

    • Kathryn O’Connor

      it is his fault. his God is angry with him. but this could be from fracking too…which is also his fault

  • Ama zonisBilderberg

    Doesn’t it blow every few hundred thousand years?

    • justsayin’

      Yes. Estimates vary, but it’s currently about 100,000-200,000 yrs. overdue.

      • No Retreat

        Considering the earth has only been in existence for approx. 8-10k years, how do you figure?

  • St.Maur1066

    Those F’n Russians!

  • jeoneo

    This is kinda worthless information without context. Ok, so 296 earthquakes in the last seven days. So how does that compare to the prior seven days? Or the same seven days last year? Without that information, this is meaningless.

  • No Retreat

    While I definitely agree that there has been a major uptick in the qty of quakes over the last 1-2 years, especially large ones, I absolutely do not give any credence to statements of E.L.E’s… Being a God fearing, Bible believing Christian, the bible clearly indicates when Jesus returns and the judgment begins, there will definitely be normal population on the earth and normal goings on. Don’t get me wrong, there can be great loss of life, just as has been going on and will continue to go on, regarding the Fukushima incident. But anytime someone talks about E.L.E’s … It shows ignorance to the Bible and God’s plan, no offense intended.

    • Kathryn O’Connor

      a lot of those quakes, especially the ones in the US where they don’t normally occur like in Ohio, were from Fracking
      who needs Jesus to return when we’re messing it up to make a few guys rich?

    • Kathryn O’Connor

      and not all of us share your belief in the Bible and that particular God. I”m a polytheist myself.

      God didn’t make the cure for my diseases. a smart human did.

      • JJ

        Apples and oranges. God didn’t make my dinner today, some high school dropout at Carl Jr’s did that, but I saw no reason to worship them for it, or love God any less because of it…I merely ate and thanked Jesus they got the order right for once.

  • harrydweeks

    Frack it ?

  • Enlightened

    The greatest tragedy with humanity is that we do not learn from history. It is very sad that the bulk of humanity are too busy repeating the same processes we have been conditioned to follow by ruling elite, working very hard and never having enough. They will scream their lungs out assuring us the sheeple that all is well so that trade and commerce which they control continues whilst they are drilling underground bunkers stocking them with all the luxuries you can dream of. Folks this world which you are seeing today will change with the twinkle of an eye sooner rather than latter and that is guaranteed. Hired trolls we think life will continue as it is should never be given an ear. I challenge those with spiritual enlightenment to speak without fear that this world is now ripe for the greatest harvest of souls. May the good LORD be with you all in this coming hour of trial which is fast approaching. But as always, just like in the days of Noah they ate and drank like there was no tomorrow until they were caught in the eye of the storm.Some of this spiritually impoverished humanity will laugh and ridicule those with spiritual discernment who keep warning of the approaching destroyer!!

    I don’t understand why you chose me to pick a fight with. This, and then no more:

    Read Revelation. You know, the last book of the bible you claim to read. It does not list in detail the names of the volcanoes or earthquakes or storms that take place during the Tribulation, so if you want to argue about the name Yellowstone not being in the bible, do it with someone else.

    President Trump signed EO 13780 on 3-6-17 which replaced EO 13769 which he had signed within days of taking office, on 1-27-17. EO13780 restricts legal immigration to the US to 50,000 for the FY 2017, and bans immigrants from Iraq, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, and Syria. It’s called the travel ban, and was immediately challenged by left-leaning judges, even though it is constitutional and travel bans have been ordered before. But I’m sure you know all this, since you are so well informed, right? You only wanted to pick a fight.

    I don’t read the lies in the fake news ‘mainstream’ media. I don’t care what they print, it’s new lies every day, made-up stories with the deliberate intent to try to make President Trump look bad. They have lied so much, so outrageously, I have no use for them whatsoever. I don’t watch the national news shows or read the newspapers or news magazines. AT ALL. If you care to know the truth, and only the truth about what’s happening in the world, find some alt-media sites online and sign up for their newsletters. Follow President Trump’s site on Facebook and Twitter. The Washington Post is absolute trash. Known for deliberately making up stories and outright lies. For you to use them as a source discredits you and all your posts completely.

    I think it’s a shame you are so hate-filled and argumentative, but I can’t help you. You have to first want to help yourself. That’s all you get from me. Have a nice day, have a nice rest of your life, and God Bless.

    In the past few years roads in Yellowstone have melted and become unpassable due to surface heat,….. Just sayin!
