** flash ** indications of severe earthquake / eruption at yellowstone national park

Sunday, 02 February 2014 05:06 

— (TRN) — A seismometer inside a borehole at Yellowstone National Park has begun reporting staggering underground activity near the southwest corner of Yellowstone Lake, possibly signaling the beginning of an eruption of the Super Volcano at the Yellowstone National Park. TRN has obtained the image of the Seismograph report and now YOU can see it for yourself! This could be very nasty. . .

Yellowstone lake is pretty much the center of what is the Yellowstone Caldera; the mouth of a massive Super Volcano, located beneath the park.

The activity began around 12:00 Noon, Mountain Standard Time (MST) on February 1, and was detected by a seismometer in Borehole B944 then continued, non-stop, all day yesterday getting worse and worse as the hours wore on. The activity is continuing right now at 6:06 EST AM as this news article is being produced.

The map below shows the location of Borehole B944 in relation to Yellowstone Lake and the rest of the park.

The readings being reported from seismometer inside Bore Hole #B944 are literally “off-the-scale.” Is an earthquake brewing, or is this the beginning of a catastrophic eruption of the Yellowstone “Super Volcano?”

Seismographic Printout from Yellowstone National Park, Bore Hole #B944, for February 1, 2014. The time stamp goes down the left edge. Look at what starts happening from 12:00 Noon for the rest of the day. By 3:00 PM MST, things get real dicey; by 5:00, it is clear there’s real trouble happening underground. By 7:00 PM, the seismographic gear is totally overwhelmed; with all readings going utterly off the scale. This could be a sign that a massive eruption of the Yellowstone Super Volcano has begun deep underground.


A second printout shows the activity continuing to this very moment, so severely that the seismometer printer is RUNNING OUT OF BLUE, BLACK AND GREEN INK!

Here is the activity from Midnight MST to 4:30 AM, MST (5:30 AM EST)



To help readers understand the implications of what is taking place, we first show the enormity of Yellowstone National “”PARK” with stats from the US National Park Service:

•Yellowstone was the world’s first National Park
•A designated World Heritage Site and designated Biosphere Reserve
•3,472 square miles or 8,987 square km
•2,221,766 acres or 898,317 hectares
•63 air miles north to south (102 km)
•54 air miles east to west 87 km)
•96 % in Wyoming
•3 % in Montana
•1 % in Idaho
•Highest Point: 11,358 ft / 3,462 m (Eagle Peak)
•Lowest Point: 5,282 ft / 1,610 m (Reese Creek)
•Larger than Rhode Island and Delaware combined
•About one-quarter the size of Switzerland and about 65% the size of Montenegro

•Approximately 5% of park is covered by water; 15% is grassland; and 80% is forest
•Precipitation ranges from 10 inches (26 cm) at the north boundary to 80 inches (205 cm) in the southwest corner
•Temperatures (average) at Mammoth: January: 9° F/-13 C in 
July: 80° F/27 C 
High: 99°F/37 C, 2002 (Mammoth)
Low Temp: -66° F/-54 C (West Entrance, Riverside Station 1933)
Here’s a map of Yellowstone:

Here is a Topographical map showing the mouth (“Caldera”) of the Super Volcano and the scarred, treacherous terrain, created by past eruptions. (Click Image to enlarge). The park boundaries are the thin Yellow line, the Caldera of the super volcano is shown by the thin Red line. Bear in mind that seismometer B944 is just next to the area labeled ‘West Thumb” on the map, showing the western edge of Yellowstone Lake. That puts this seismic activity right smack in the active zone of the actual caldera.

A recent program aired by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) *** THEORIZED *** what an eruption of Yellowstone would affect. Below is the *** THEORETICAL *** blast, damage and volcanic ash fallout area, which is shown in various shades of Orange.

(This image does NOT reflect an ongoing eruption — it is not real)

If this is the start of an eruption at Yellowstone, the entire northwest quadrant of the country could be affected by damage and disruption beyond human comprehension.

We will monitor this story closely.

What is a super volcano?

A super volcano is the most destructive force on this planet. Only a few exist in the world and when they erupt they do so with a force tens of thousands of times greater than other eruptions. They lie dormant for hundreds of thousands of years as a vast reservoir of magma builds up inside them before finally they unleash their apocalyptic force, capable of obliterating continents. They threaten the survival of  actual mankind.

What happened during the last eruption of a super volcano?

The last eruption of a super volcano was in Toba, Sumatra, 75,000 years ago. It had 10,000 times the explosive force of Mount St. Helens and changed life on Earth forever. Thousands of cubic kilometres of ash was thrown into the atmosphere – so much that it blocked out light from the sun all over the world. 2,500 miles away 35 centimetres of ash coated the ground. Global temperatures plummeted by 21 degrees. The rain would have been so poisoned by the gasses that it would have turned black and strongly acidic. Man was pushed to the edge of extinction, the population forced down to just a couple of thousand. Three quarters of all plants in the northern hemisphere were killed.

What causes super volcanoes?
Super volcanoes differ from normal volcanoes in many ways. The stereotypical volcano is a towering cone, but super volcanoes form in depressions in the ground called calderas. When a normal volcano erupts lava gradually builds up in the mountain before releasing it. In super volcanoes when magma nears the surface it does not reach it, instead it begins to fill massive underground reservoirs. The magma melts the nearby rock to form more extremely thick magma. The magma is so viscous that volcanic gasses that normally trigger an eruption cannot pass, so a massive amount of pressure begins to build up. This continues for hundreds of thousands of years until an eruption occurs, which blasts away a huge amount of ground, forming a new caldera.


Depuis 680,000 ans ,l'ensemble de la surface de la grande caldeira est en remontée.Depuis quelques années,la pression a considérablement augmentée et l'élévation s'accélère.

Since 680,000 years , the whole surface of the lift is large caldera.
In recent years, the pressure has increased considerably and the rise is accelerating.

Where are there other super volcanoes?

Not all super volcanoes have been found, but one of the largest is in Yellowstone Park, USA. Scientists searching for the caldera in the park could not see it because it was so huge – only when satellite images were taken did the scale of the caldera become apparent – the whole park, 85km by 45km, is one massive reservoir of magma. The idyll landscpae of Yellowstone (below) could soon explode with devastating consequences.

When will it next erupt?

Scientist have discovered that the ground in Yellowstone if 74cm higher than in was in 1923 – indicating a massive swelling underneath the park. The reservoir is filling with magma at an alarming rate. The volcano erupts with a near-clockwork cycle of every 600,000 years. The last eruption was more than 640,000 years ago – we are overdue for annihilation.

What would be the effect of an eruption?

Immediately before the eruption, there would be large earthquakes in the Yellowstone region. The ground would swell further with most of Yellowstone being uplifted. One earthquake would finally break the layer of rock that holds the magma in – and all the pressure the Earth can build up in 640,000 years would be unleashed in a cataclysmic event.

Magma would be flung 50 kilometres into the atmosphere. Within a thousand kilometres virtually all life would be killed by falling ash, lava flows and the sheer explosive force of the eruption. Volcanic ash would coat places as far away as Iowa and the Gulf of Mexico. One thousand cubic kilometres of lava would pour out of the volcano, enough to coat the whole of the USA with a layer 5 inches thick. The explosion would have a force 2,500 times that of Mount St. Helens. It would be the loudest noise heard by man for 75,000 years, the time of the last super volcano eruption. Within minutes of the eruption tens of thousands would be dead.

The long-term effects would be even more devastating. The thousands of cubic kilometres of ash that would shoot into the atmosphere could block out light from the sun, making global temperatures plummet. This is called a nuclear winter. As during the Sumatra eruption a large percentage of the world’s plant life would be killed by the ash and drop in temperature. Also, virtually the entire of the grain harvest of the Great Plains would disappear in hours, as it would be coated in ash. Similar effects around the world would cause massive food shortages. If the temperatures plummet by the 21 degrees they did after the Sumatra eruption the Yellowstone super volcano eruption could truly be an extinction level event.
