Fears the huge volcano at Yellowstone National Park in the US could be building up for a huge eruption have been raised after a series of “earthquake swarms”. At least 112 earthquakes have been recorded in the Yellowstone National Park (YNP) region in September 2015, the University of Utah Seismograph Stations reported.
Temperature in thermal springs usually suitable for bathing, in a volcanic area close to Yellowstone, in Idaho, got so high that dogs who plunged in were killed and their owner who tried to rescue them was seriously burned.(Was this reported in MSM, mentioning anything in connection to YELLOWSTONE, of course not, instead the park reports it was because of “drought conditions.”)
Yellowstone is one of the ten biggest volcanoes in the world, and it is widely accepted if it erupted fully there would be catastrophic events across the planet.
The huge volcano has erupted every 600,000 to 700,000 years over the past two million years – with the last one 640,000 years ago – so it is also feared the next major eruption is due any time.(WHERE THEY COME UP WITH THESE YEARS!)
More minor eruptions that affect just the park occur every 20,000 years, but there has not been one for 70,000 years, so it is feared another blast is overdue. (SERIOUSLY!!)
If a full-scale eruption happened it would likely see a 50-mile wide explosion with ash clouds hurled 80,000-feet into the air.
The eruption would last up to two weeks and spread ash so far it would block out the sun to much of the globe, causing another ice age.
Michael Yuri Janitch, from St Louis, Missouri, who monitors global seismic activity under the user name Dutchsinse, placed a video online after learning the dogs were killed in an area of the national park in Idaho that had seen a spike in earthquake activity and forest fires, which he believes are connected to seismic activity and underground temperatures.
He said: “I bring this to you not to be scared but to be prepared just in case.
“The man and his two dogs were walking through the Salmon-Challis National Forest, 50 miles north west of Salmon, east-central Idaho, when the animals plunged into the water.
“It is normally temperate enough for humans to bathe in.
“This is the same spot as the swarm of earthquakes I pointed out at Challis, Idaho.
“Why is that happening? Why are the earthquakes happening? And the wildfires? They are all in volcanic areas.
“Now we’ve got someone who jumped into a hot spring and got boiled and is lucky to be alive and it all comes on the heels of the earthquake activity.”
Because Yellowstone is so active, with its thermal spring explosions, hundreds of earthquakes each year and the huge magma chamber, it is now one of the most studied volcanic areas in the world.
Researchers have placed 12 GPS monitors to detect ground movement as low as a quarter of an inch.
Satellite maps of the park are also developed to compare each year how much the ground has moved over time.
Scientist are looking for drastic increases in the temperature of thermal springs, an increase in earthquakes, and any increase in the ground surface which could indicate magma rising beneath.
Two areas are causing the most concern due to significant changes that have been witnessed.
An area just north of Yellowstone lake has a resurgent dome (with 300 cubic miles of magma just five miles below ground) which saw the most dramatic uplift of 6 to 8cm two years ago.
Robert Smith, a geophysicist at Utah University, said in the film: “We have seen uplift of 6 to 8 cm (in some areas) every year. Those are high levels.”
He said: “This suggests the magma chamber is expanding.”
The second area is the Norris Geyser Basin, which has dozens of fault lines
The narrator said: “There is concern when these centres overlap an area of shift terrain – what seems to be happening at the Norris Geyser Basin.”
Hank Heasler, Yellowstone Park Geologist, said: “The sense and scale of the catastrophic eruption for Yellowstone is very hard to grasp.”
But he is convinced nothing is about to happen and we would get weeks of warnings through water temperature increases and explosions, earthquakes and ground movement.
Michael Ramping, an earth scientist at New York University, said: “We don’t know how much time we have before one goes off.
“That is why scientists are studying every aspect of the volcano as what they discover may be the key to our survival.”
He said: “At the area north of the lake it is all quiet. There has not been a further rise for two years. The earthquake levels in the park at the moment are below normal.”
When asked if the detailed monitoring had allowed them to predict when a super eruption, or even the overdue smaller one, would happen, he said “no”.
But he said that authorities including the national park regularly reviewed their data and acted accordingly and emergency evacuation plans were in place.
The Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) has been created to strengthen long-term monitoring of volcanic and earthquake unrest in the Yellowstone region.
Its website says: “Yellowstone is the site of the largest and most diverse collection of natural thermal features in the world.
“YVO is one of the five USGS Volcano Observatories that monitor volcanoes within the United States for science and public safety.”
It latest monthly update published this month gave a volcano alert level as normal and “green”, meaning no eruptions are expected imminently.
It said there have been 112 earthquakes recorded in September, including swarms of 24 at the start of the month, and 22 towards the end. The highest magnitude was 2.2.
There was a magnitude 3 earthquake on May 18 this year in the park – the highest of the year.

Jesus Christ was born, lived, died, and rose again for the sole purpose of saving us from our sins. Are you saved? The bible declares that “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” – Romans 10:13 (KJV). Salvation is turning your life over to Jesus Christ, believing that Jesus is the son of God, and renewing your mind with his spirit, that is done through repentance of sin, and following JESUS with all your heart, mind and soul. JESUS transforms lives, if you are ready for this life saving step, call upon your savior TODAY! Learn more here.
We are definitely told in prophecy that the earth will burn and melt away, and we also know that it will be done by the spoken WORD OF GOD…it would not be far-fetched that GOD will in fact use the eruption of all volcanoes to create this cataclysmic end to earth.
Lift up your eyes to the heavens, and look upon the earth beneath: for the heavens shall vanish away like smoke, and the earth shall wax old like a garment, and they that dwell therein shall die in like manner: but my salvation shall be for ever, and my righteousness shall not be abolished.- Isaiah 51:6 (KJV).
And I will shew wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke – Acts 2:19 (KJV).
And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven- Luke 21:11 (KJV).
And the mountains shall be molten under him, and the valleys shall be cleft, as wax before the fire, and as the waters that are poured down a steep place. – Micah 1:4 (KJV).
Oh, that you would rend the heavens and come down, that the mountains would tremble before you! As when fire sets twigs ablaze and causes water to boil – Isaiah 64:1-2 (KJV).
I clothe the heavens with blackness, and I make sackcloth their covering – Isaiah 50:3 (KJV).
NOTE: Young Earth: As you add up all of the dates, and accepting that Jesus Christ, the Son of God, came to Earth almost 2,000 years ago, we come to the conclusion that the creation of the Earth and animals (including the dinosaurs) occurred only thousands of years ago (perhaps only 6000!), not millions of years. Thus, if the Bible is right (and it is!), dinosaurs must have lived within the past thousands of years.
