Yellowstone volcano: Supervolcano hit by almost earthquake SWARM – will it erupt?

“There is no indication that this swarm is related to magma moving through the shallow crust.”

The Yellowstone supervolcano, located in the US state of Wyoming, last erupted on a major scale 640,000 years ago.

According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), the chances of a Yellowstone eruption is around one-in-730,000.

With 640,000 years having passed since the last major eruption, Yellowstone is edging closer to exploding – but it could still be thousands of years away.

However, experts are preparing for the worst now and are studying how a major eruption, which could instantly wipe out large swathes of the US, could be prevented.
