Yellowstone volcano: Earthquakes strike under supervolcano

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.

If the Wyoming volcano were to erupt an estimated 87,000 people would be killed immediately and two-thirds of the USA would immediately be made uninhabitable.
