A lava flow would be a big deal at Yellowstone, but would have very little regional or continental effect,” Lowenstern explained.Author: Mac Slavo Views: Read by 11,061 people Date: September 3rd, 2017 Website: An analysis of fossilized ash – left over from the last supereruption at Yellowstone 630,000 years ago – reveals the process could take only decades.Early evidence in the research was presented at an August volcanology conference in Portland, Oregon, the New York Times reports.
In 2010 a swarm brought over 2,000 earthquakes over a month. The geological pressure would have to be sizable for anything to occur.
Should these earthquakes lead to an eruption, scientists think it would not be of much consequence.
“If Yellowstone erupts, it’s most likely to be a lava flow, as occurred in nearly all the 80 eruptions since the last ‘supereruption’ 640,000 years ago.
Nearly 6,000 people have been evacuated so far and that number was expected to rise, officials said. We need to feed the animals so that's what we're doing first," villager Wayan Suarda told national television station tv One.
Some residents in villages at the foot of Mount Agung said they were reluctant to leave immediately. Others packed their belongings into trucks for evacuation, while more stopped to watch as clouds of white smoke rose from the crater, which is around 3,000 metres (9,840 feet) above sea level. Indonesia has nearly 130 active volcanoes, more than any other country.
