Yes many changes will occur so it is very hard to know if many will live in the U. S. since it is so close to us. Weather will have a lot to do with this, rain, winds, and storms which it may create. California may fall into the ocean. Many states will be destroyed.February 24, 2015 at 12:23 am #37062
I doubt anyone west of the Mississippi river would live. The ash deposits from previous eruptions are that far.February 24, 2015 at 12:31 am #37064
Yes you are right 74. The thing is that today we have the internet, TV, Radio and cellphones which means many will know that Yellow stone is starting to erupt. Volcanoes start to erupt slowly and show signs of the beginning of an eruption. almost all take days before they erupt.
When we see these signs we need to move if we are close to it.February 24, 2015 at 12:47 am #37065
Freedom get on a jet plane and go……..
I found info that in Nebraska the ash was up to 10′ thick.February 24, 2015 at 12:48 am #37066
It will probably be my extinction which is enough extinction for me.February 24, 2015 at 1:14 am #37071
Yes the amount of ash is a lot but also remember that we do not know how long the 10′ may have been in the 12 to 24 month span. The ash keeps on falling till the sky clears up.February 24, 2015 at 1:15 am #37072
chester you got me to LOL, same here!!February 24, 2015 at 1:26 am #37074
Just to be clear, this is not a threat I am concerned with. It makes for an interesting conversation is all. There is a huge difference between the collapse of civilization and an extinction level event. A Yellowstone super volcano could collapse civilizations around the world and collapse populations worldwide, but it would not be an extinction level event. Out of the ashes a new civilization would eventually arise. Small pockets of civilization might make it through reasonably intact. Were I to be amongst the lucky few for whom travel/fleeing was an option, I would head to an equatorial region, perhaps someplace in Northern Australia or failing that to someplace like Costa Rica or Panama. .February 24, 2015 at 1:28 am #37077
It would be nasty Freedom, nowhere to go for half of the US.February 24, 2015 at 1:36 am #37079
I know 74, it would be the last thing that I would want to happen. It is moving in some places up to 10″ which is not good. I hope it doesn’t happen.February 24, 2015 at 1:39 am #37081
There are more pressing issues for sure, however volcanoes are frequently erupting in different places. One aspect that they cause is flight bans. The volcano in Iceland disrupted air travel in Europe for a week or so. It’s not bad to keep track of them.February 24, 2015 at 1:45 am #37082
Here’s one for you then. The 1815 eruption of Mt. Tambora in the Dutch East Indies caused the infamous 1816 year without a summer. Northern New England and Northern New York suffered crop failures due to late snows and frosts during the summer. There were major food shortages and people went hungry.February 24, 2015 at 1:45 am #37083
Yes agree. The thing is that we have learned that almost all eruption start slow and then intensifies so I hope if Yellow Stone does start it will give many time to get out.February 24, 2015 at 2:10 am #37086
MB, The ones that have not stored food and water will die if Yellow stone erupts.February 24, 2015 at 2:14 am #37087
Lol, ya slow like Krakatoa and Mt Saint Hellens
or this little baby.
