For the most part, since the wind blows from the west to the east , you should be fairly safe .

Finally somebody giving the Long Valley Caldera the credit it deserves!

Every couple hundred thousand years one of these things goes off somewhere in the world. If it's not Yellowstone, it's Toba or it's Long Valley or it's Taupo. Volcanic eruption is one of the few disasters where bugging out is the only option. Fortunately they don't happen without a lot of advance warning and big events are hundreds of thousand years apart.

Lot of smaller volcanoes going off all the time. St Helens, Pinatubo, Santorini, Lassen, Krakatoa, Montserrat, etc. It is part of the natural cycle.

Yellowstone would be vast compared to Krakatoa.
Jellystone according to the experts is about 1 million times bigger then Krakatoa. They also call it the planet killer, as the educated figures are staggering to say the least. In short term affects, they figure about 10 % of the pop would expire and the long term effects bring that up to about 90%. The long term affects would be no sun to grow crops with, no grids anywhere on the planet, no transportation for the most part, which then says no food delieveries or rx supplies. No power means no tv, computers, phones etc No Nothing Then after a couple of years or so, they figure the ash cloud will be dispersed enough to allow the rains to once again start. The planet would go into a "mini ice age" if you will. It would drop a few degrees and that would make winter really tough at best. Not a very good outlook at all

Thanks for all that. I am still curious about that 100 mile line.

From what I have seen on disc. channel, and others it is where if you are within the 100 mile line, you would pretty much go with the first major explosion. That is the general feeling anyway

Being within the 100 mile line would be ideal in a massive Yellowstone eruption. The ones that died instataneously would be considered the lucky ones by the people who would suffer survival in a scenario such as this. Your best hope would be reincarnation maybe 50 years later. The Earth might be really pleasant at that point!

I'm well outside the 100 mile line, though still close enough to feel the heat if it did go off. I'd better stock up on marsh mellows and hotdogs cause if that thing goes, It'll be one heck of a weiner roast...smores anyone?

Have you ever looked at the ash map? I think you need to look at the ash map. Not only that, but lets consider that we can look back and see what has happened in the past to know what the possibilites are. To scoff is folly. Hence why the locals live where they do. It hasn't happened ever, so it can't possibly, that's just crazy talk, right?

I'm in AZ and I'm in the ash fallout zone. We're somewhat ready, still kind of figuring that one out. We have a couple of masks at this point, and the kids know not to turn on the a/c or heat to hopefully prevent the unit from sucking ash, and we'll close our roof vents. Right now I'm really not sure what else we'll be able to do, but sit at home and wait it out and see what happens afterward.

I really liked this movie. They did a great job of depicting a plausible case scenario:

Why be concerned about something that is very unlikely to occur during your lifetime when there are several events just as bad as a Yellowstone supereruption that are very likely to occur and in just the next 10 years namely widespread economic catastrophe, famine, plague and war.

Even if the odds are against it blowing up. There is no harm in being informed. All statistics point to the fact that it will most likely blow up again. Just because it doesn't make "your" top 10 list doesn't mean that others are not allowed to talk about it. So, why not leave the negative critiques out of the threads and allow the others to have an honest discussion over something that interests them?

This thread reminds me I should take up Yoga...
I live close enough to yellowstone that if it ever does go super volcano, I'll need to be flexible enough to bend over and kiss my behind goodbye.

Saw that one, it was pretty good. Gives the idea of Old Faithful a new meaning.

You could survive fairly easily in tropical places and near warm ocean currents.

Remember, all the animals in north america (bears, wolves, deer, etc) survived Yellowstone the last time it happened. It would kill anything nearby but it wouldn't be a "world-ender".

Surely it would cripple the USA. No country on earth could take that devastating a hit. Full economic shut down, complete chaos. Americans would be fleeing to Canada, Mexico, and Europe. The west coast would not be safe either. Without the food crops coming in from the midwest, which would be completely tanked, no one could remain near a city and live.

Yellowstone blowing would suck.
