Is the world's largest super-volcano set to erupt for the first time in 600,000 years, wiping out two-thirds of the U.S.? (Full title)
The super-volcano beneath Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming has been rising at a record rate since 2004.
It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980.
Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1,000 miles away.
Two-thirds of the U.S. could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it, grounding thousands of flights and forcing millions to leave their homes.

And the new madrid fault is also supposedly acting up.
Sure glad we have king bo to save us. /s
When I see a story about all of the animals leaving Yellowstone quickly then I’ll start to worry..
What’d we expect? It’s like ....millions of degrees down there.
We are all going to die!
It’s erupted three times in 2,000,000 years.
If it erupts next month, it won’t be early.
If it doesn’t erupt for another 10,000 years, it won’t be late.
America and Americans will mostly not survive, a few here and there, according to winds and whether there is any air to breath that is not full of huge amounts of volcanic ash.. There is little too nothing other than pray that we can do regarding this. It would have devastating effects all over the world. One might even say this might be ... The day the world changed forever.
By then, you'll have less than 24 hours...much less...to get someplace safe. If you are in proximity to it. Meaning as far east as the Mississippi.
I was kind of worried about this since I have a loved one who lives right by it but then after I posted it I thought well there is really nothing we could do about it anyway it’s in the Lords hands.
Don’t worry, FEMA will save us.
If the Detroit Lions qualify for the Super Bowl, then I’ll know the end is near.
Somehow it will be Sarah Palin’s fault.
Why yes it is! The skinny however is the human ability to predict when? Chances are we’ll all be long dead and gone as a species before it happens.
Nothing I am concerned about for our lifetimes that’s for sure, and probably serveral more generations, if the mechanisms that trigger it are still cyclical and in motion.
I don’t sweat this kind of thing. More worried about an EMP.
Can I reserve one of those trailers now?
Can I reserve one of those trailers now?
1. Superstorms arise from the Pacific wiping out California.
2. Yellowstone erupts wiping out 2/3 of the United States.
3. Betelgeuse goes supernova wiping out the world.
4. Sarah Palin elected wiping out the entire universe.
If it did, that would really blow bigtime!
No way is it the worlds largest supervolcano.
FEMA is looking to get tons of food that can last for 36 months, 14 million meals a day.
Thank You Discovery Channel for using disaster porn to further dumb down America.
Now everyone is just sitting around looking for every little thing to kill them.
I guess the forthcoming gigantic explosion will sorta confirm the Westboro Baptist Church’s riff that “God hates America.”
On the other hand, Fred Phelps and the WBC congregation probably won’t be around to celebrate, since Topeka would seem to lie within the zone that gets buried in ten feet of volcanic ash!
I’m more worried about another term for the Kenyan.
Nothing beats some good news on a Monday morning./sarc.
Coulda, woulda, shoulda
End-of-the-world speculation fills a few columns on a slow news day.
It’s AGW...if we all just stop breathing (producing CO2) it will solve everything.
In fact this administration might actually fund a way to force the eruption - ultimate late term abortion and end of life planning. They just need to convince all their detractors to move to the most affected areas!!! /sarc
lol they are preparing for the New Madrid Fault but I think people will be better off preparing themselves. Actually one should prepare no matter where they live there is always some kind of natural disaster or man made disaster that could erupt.

Here is the lastest:
Decline of Yellowstone Elk, blamed on wolves and bears.
Grizzly bear deaths increase near Yellowstone.
Yellowstone Magna pocket swells:
Anything is possible but I’ve just read articles saying current activity does NOT indicate an eruption anytime soon. Also I believe there are more frequent but smaller eruptions in between the biggies. You would see maJor activity in advance I would think way more than you saw prior to Mt. St. Helens.
I forgot to add...they will probably sell Yellowstone to a private firm beforehand and then blame capitalism for the explosion!!!
No one knows. There. that would have saved how many words of B.S.
Hm, you sound like a “glass half full” kind of person!
I don't know that the timeline would require getting excited . . .
and the following only need drive us closer to God and His Peace
however, the FACT
that these signals are increasing DURING the BIBLICAL END TIMES PERIOD as witnessed by a very long list of other indicators is a bit sobering.
Throw in the globalists purported nefarious super tech capacitites to trigger and influence devastating geological stuff . . . hmmmmm
Folks need to wake up . . . as in NEEED to wake up.
We aren't in Kansas any more.
We aren't going back to Kansas any more.
Kansas may not even be in very good shape any more, if yellowstone blows it's top . . . or Monsanto has its way.
Sara Palin’s fault. /s/
Sara Palin’s fault. /s/
Article advises to read more - so I did;)
“But due the extreme conditions it has been hard to work out what exactly is going on down below, leading researchers unable to say with certainty what will happen - or when.
Since the most recent blast 640,000 years ago there have been around 30 smaller eruptions, the most recent of which was 70,000 years ago.”
Is that for my trailer? It’ll be nice to be in before Christmas.
What can you share about the equatorial water bulge . . . don't recall if I've asked you or not.
John Moore, here:
asserts that between mean average sea level at Cornwall England and high points in the bulge can be as much as 450 feet difference . . . meaning there's many CUBIC MILES of water above sea level in that bulge. Do you have any guesstimates of how much water?
And, if there were some geomagnetic anomolies of great intensity and/or pole shift dynamics of significant drama . . . how much damage how far up and inland could the bulge water result in? I'm having a hard time precisely placing the NM/UT/AZ/Colo 4 corners area on the Stan Deyo Hopi map below. Can you help at all?
Well, there goes my neighborhood...
The media is going to hype this stuff like crazy to whip up interest for 2012 stories.First the mass animal deaths.(Which is a non story it happens all the time.)Then the superstorms, now this.We’re going to be bombarded with stories like this all year long.Just as long as nobody forgets the real disaster is puttering around on a golf course somewhere near D.C.
Could you help place the SW 4 Corners area on the map in #46 above?
Would much appreciate it.
I know the Hopi elders believe that their mesas will have to be reached by boat.
