....Not to mention that Toba blew 75,000 years ago and the only way we know of it is ash deposits in the geological record.

I specifically skipped Toba in my original post because we have no historical record of the actual effect. We can only assume how powerful the Toba eruption was. Contrast that with Krakatoa, where we have very good scientific records and eyewitness accounts. We can verify the impact of the eruption on global climate by comparing data before and after. Krakatoa was a VEI 6, while Yellowstone is predicted to be a VEI 8.

I hope that sharkeater and anyone concerned with Yellowstone will find it a helpful read.

From that article: "Meteorologist Tom Skilling moved to calm any nerves, and said this is actually an unusually quiet week for the supervolcano.
He wrote on the WGN news website: “Minor earthquakes occur in the Yellowstone area 50 or more times per week, but a major eruption is not expected in the foreseeable future.”

The Yellowstone Caldera supervolcano last erupted 700,000 years ago but experts say it should blow every one million years or so."

The Yellowstone caldera erupts more often in a non explosive manner. These normal sized flows of ash and lava occur in between the very rare catastofic events, and they out number the big blasts by a ratio of 80 to 1. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellowstone_Caldera

"The area in and around Yellowstone National Park has seen tremendous volcanic activity in its past. Three giant eruptions have occurred between 2.1 million and 640,000 years ago. The most recent eruption formed the Yellowstone caldera. Since then, the park has seen roughly 80 mostly non-explosive eruptions. Some of these events were about the size of the 1991 Pinatubo eruption in the Philippines. The most “recent” of these smaller events occurred in the Pitchstone Plateau, located in the Bechler and Fall River drainages, 70,000 years ago."

Eh, I think the chances of Yellowstone erupting or having some activity are high. But on the scale of a true "super volcano" eruption? Not in our lifetimes or that of our great grandchildren. The earth in general is much less active geologically than it was millions of years ago. Now, when and if the plate merging and sliding gets nearer to the Yellowstone area, then possibly. But not until then unless something REALLY weird happens.

That being said, I have no doubt that smaller scale eruptions or other geologic events will take place. Just a good gas discharge even could kill everything in the area and those are more common than eruptions. Time will tell. Be prepared for anything, but don't focus to hard on individual scenarios. Life is full of surprises.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, another wiggle:
"Park employees reported seeing an eruption at the Steamboat Geyser in northwest Wyoming Thursday evening.If confirmed, the eruptions would be the first since 2014."

Probably just more burping....

The odds of it going off in my lifetime are so low that I'll worry about lots of other stuff first.

If it blows you are just hosed as will be most of the globe with the Game of Thrones style winter that will follow. Hope you are close enough to just get wiped and not have to deal with the aftermath.

I am near Dulles International Airport which is a hot target half way between DC and Mt Weather, two other hot targets. I don't worry about volcanoes but nuclear attack and I will just see the pretty lights all around and wither. Some things you just can't stop.

Personally, I'm with you on that. BUT... it never hurts to monitor all the vibrations in the web of various scenario strings out there.

I've already spent 35 pages of thread explaining why you are absolutely wrong.

You're also wrong about getting nuked unless you happen to be within 5 miles of that airport. 1 mile if you've got a bunker or even a good basement. And it's an all out complete exchange of nuclear weapons between Russia and the US.

Well its been a while since anything about this place caught my eye. Seems there is a little more activity near old faithful. Maybe that's a good thing...

Hey! Any of you living around Yellowstone!!!! I got a question....

Does any government agencies or local authorities ever talk about being ready if it ever blows? Do they pass around literature to help you all get ready? Hold meetings and have educated folk talk the air out of a room telling how bad it COULD be?

FL is largely safe from the ash but they say the tidal wave created by it will submerge FL...LOL
