Quantcast

Geologists are concerned that the rising number of earthquakes and the disruption of Old Faithful are signs of an eruption of the volcano at Yosemite Park. Does this make you a little nervous?

Scientists say that there have been eruptions of the volcano at Yosemite Park every 600,000 years and that we are due now for another one. These eruptions are huge. They predict that the next eruption will immediately affect most of the United States. Furthermore, the ash from the worlds largest volcano will cover most of the world and create another ice age. Scientists predict world wide starvation. I have been hearing more and more about the impending eruption lately. There has been a lot of chatter among geologists about the things happening around the volcano and I find that a little unsettling. Is anyone else following this?

    The bible clearly tells us that there will be terrible earthquakes that will kill millions. These are acts of God and I am not afraid.

    Yes I have heard this I am sure it is because of global warming. We have been having slight earthquakes in our state, we live right on a fault line. We have never had major earthquakes like CA. But I keep my ears open on this. Maybe Yosemite is on a fault line too?

    Must add, because I cannot do a darned thing about it. The earth, I think , is moving on the axis as it has done through out time - it would not surprise me that this activity is part of this natural occurrence. Earth has been cooling for the past 11 years (yes , I know global warming - patooie, hoax!); some see this as part of the natural phenomenon and predict a mini ice age once again. We will see, or not - I may not live that long.

    First, is it likely to happen in my lifetime? Probably not. Second, if it happens, can I do anything about it? Again, probably not.

    So I'm not going to worry about something that is out of my control! Just continue to live life as best as you can! LOL

    In all the pictures of Old Faithful I have seen it is a glorious spout of water as it was when I saw it perhaps 25 years ago. Ten years ago it was like an upchuck with very little power or height to the water plume.........It was losing its power. I am not sure what will happen in Yellowstone, but I saw what happened with Mt. St. Helen's..... It was powerful, and ash went round the world, but the immediate devastation was limited to an area within the state of Washington. So, I don't know about Yellowstone, but if the big majestic Mr. Ranier blows............watch out.

    I lived near Mt. St. Helens when it blew. It was eerrie. I didnt know about the eruption and went to take out the trash. There was this weird redish haze all around. I looked up and saw hundreds of funnel like spouts in heavy black/ grey clouds. I wondered what the heck happened. I ran in and turned the news on and found out the mountain had just blown. I wish that I had taken pictures because I never have seen pictures that captured what I saw.

    God will take care of me and my family - I have heared about the supervolcano in yosemite/yellowstone national park. and it sounds bad - but there is nothing we can do about it if it happens we all die - we will die someday anyway. until then I will not worry about it - the comet may strike first - or the comet will strike the park and cause the eruption in 2012 who knows. stay close to your family and pray and dont worry about that. obama is enough to worry about.

    Haven't heard much recent news about it, but I'm pretty familiar with the super-volcano underneath it. The caldera is almost 10 miles wide, if my memory is correct. I was driving through it and didn't even realize it.

    Thank you for the question Christine.

    I have heard of this and it does bother me. It seems they are uncertain of what may happen but the possibilities have me very concerned. If the volcano goes off none of what we as a nation are going through will matter. We will simply be fighting to survive!!

    We are long over due. I sure wouldn't want to be East of Yellowstone... They say when it goes it's going to be a big one. It's has a few more years yet as there will be three and a half good years before the three and a half bad years of the tribulation so make preparations in the good times before it blows.

    Did you mean Yellowstone Park instead of Yosemite? There are no craters in Yosemite But Yellow Stone is one mega crater, the largest in the World. I read an article the Yellow Stone had a number a small quakes.

    Yea, many small ones rather than one big one.

    I've seen the programs on Discovery Channel, I think, about this mega crater, it's over due. It would blow a hole right through the middle of North America. All communications would be lost. Then maybe California could finally become it's own country! I'd like that part!
