BREAKING: Yellowstone’s Supervolcano Belly Rumbling
A Sheep No More ^ | 2/3/14 | Andrew Pontbriand

Posted on 02/04/2014 8:24:36 PM PST by Mike Darancette

A seismometer inside a borehole at Yellowstone National Park has begun reporting staggering underground activity near the southwest corner of Yellowstone Lake, possibly signaling the beginning of an eruption of the Super Volcano at the Yellowstone National Park

Yellowstone National Park is home to many beauties, with it’s ancient landscape, geysers, and hot springs. It is also the site of one of the worlds most destructive forces. A supervolcano.

Although we endured similar rumblings in, IIRC, 2003 and nothing happened. And it wasn’t a single seismometer at that time, it involved a large number across the extent of the lava dome.

Several documentaries I've seen suggest that Yellowstone has caused enormous problems in the (distant) past and if it ever again got fully cookin’ it could have cataclysmic consequences.

Yellowstone magma much bigger than thought, study says

HELENA, Mont – The hot molten rock beneath Yellowstone National Park is 2 1/2 times larger than previously estimated, meaning the park's supervolcano has the potential to erupt with a force about 2,000 times the size of Mount St. Helens, according to a new study.

By measuring seismic waves from earthquakes, scientists were able to map the magma chamber underneath the Yellowstone caldera as 55 miles long, lead author Jamie Farrell of the University of Utah said Monday.

The chamber is 18 miles wide and runs at depths from 3 to 9 miles below the earth, he added.

That means there is enough volcanic material below the surface to match the largest of the supervolcano's three eruptions over the last 2.1 million years, Farrell said.

Current Alert level: Green Normal

Yellowstone earthquake activity in January remains at a relatively low background level. Current deformation patterns at Yellowstone remain within historical norms.

We’re coming up on the dibicential of the eruption of the Indonesian volcano which triggered the infamous “year without a summer” of 1816, a.k.a. “Eighteen Hundred and froze to death”.

Somebody better put a catalytic converter over all of those particulate emmissions /sarc.

Although I've admired Yellowstone's natural features, when I hear "beauties" I think more of the summer interns.

And it's its.

new reports are coming in the a borehole (B944) at Yellowstone Lake (where most activity is) has shown some pretty intense movements.

“The activity began around 12:00 Noon, Mountain Standard Time (MST) on February 1, and was detected by a seismometer in Borehole B944 then continued, non-stop, all day yesterday getting worse and worse as the hours wore on.

The activity is continuing right now at 6:06 EST AM as this news article is being produced.”

According to the analysis of earthquake data in 2013, the magma chamber is 80 km (50 mi) long and 20 km (12 mi) wide, and is shaped like 4,000 km3(960 cu mi) underground mass, of which 6–8% is filled with molten rock.

A lot bigger.

If this thing is about to go all FReepers need to get to San Antonio, maybe just North to the Austin area Hill Country.

Bring seeds, and every mechanical item you have.

Here is how I see it happening....

“Hmm feels like a small earthquake...”

“Oh look at those dark black clouds coming this way very rapidly, must be a cold front..”

“Wow for some reason it is getting awfully hot as those clouds approach...”

“Why am I on fire?”

“Ahhhhhhh ahhhhh ahhhhh ahhhhhhhh.......”

“Hello, are you St. Peter?”

Yep... project 66, and Quake lake. My dad was fishing Hebgen, and left the day before the quake. The old lady who owned the cabins on the shore was led to safety by her poodle after the flood on the shore.

It is the Pyroclastic flow that will kill the most people, not the magma....

It looks like a black rapidly moving storm cloud and is hundreds of degrees....
