Yellowstone Park Volcano

When will it erupt, and what will happen?

Under “normal” geological conditions (inactive), there may be little threat

Yellowstone’s next major eruption will probably be centered in one of three parallel fault zones running north-northwest across the park, a new study predicts.

"It is not an imminent hazard," Girard said. "Every study has concluded that there is no magma that is ready to erupt within any foreseeable future."

True? Hope so…

The bible predicts large global earthquakes. If one occurred, it could disrupt what is now considered normal, and inactive, and make the volcano a threat:

The biggest concern with an eruption the size of Yellowstone is ashfall. The force would shoot ash into the atmosphere up to 30 kilometres high where the easterly jetstream would carry it as far away as Europe within three days.

The volcano would also eject sulphuric acid into the air forming an aerosol that remains in the atmosphere for years, screening out sunlight, causing global temperatures to drop and killing crops for years afterward.

Even 1 millimetre of ash will close airports, cause damage to vehicles and houses, and contaminate water supplies.
