U.S. Geological Survey: Yellowstone Eruption Imminent

Yellowstone National Park — Yellowstone National Park is one of our country’s great treasures. It is home to a startling variety of wildlife and untouched forest. But, Yellowstone holds a little-known secret. It is one of the world’s supervolcanoes. The Yellowstone caldera is approximately 35 miles by 45 miles, with a magma chamber 50 miles long and 12 miles wide. The supervolcano erupting three times in the last 2 million years, the most recent 630,000 years ago.

This morning the US Geological Survey (USGS), issued an alarming warning that an eruption is imminent.

Gish Gallop was able to talk to Dr. Sara Moser, a vulcanologist with the USGS. We asked Sara what led her to conclude that an eruption is imminent.

“We have seen a major increase in earthquakes and thermal venting,” said Dr. Sara. “We have never seen this much magma building under the park this quickly. The park has increased 21 feet in elevation due to the buildup of magma.”




“We can expect an explosion several times more powerful than the nuclear bomb dropped on Hiroshima,” continued Dr. Moser. “Followed by a massive eruption of 240 cubic miles of ash and rock rising to 60,000 feet, this will blanket cities as far away as St. Louis in 20 feet of ash. Cities close to Yellowstone will be destroyed.” Sara sounded depressed, “The ash will be carried around the world by prevailing winds. A volcanic winter will come, millions if not billions will die.”

Sara told Gish Gallop that the imminent eruption will occur on or around June 17th of this year, just in time for the vacation season. FEMA and other government agencies have not responded to our inquiries.

Right about eruption… wrong about correct year… Per Bible Code predictions, it will be between 2016-2018 (in other words, in 2017)… Not sure on the month, though, as Bible Code predicted the month of June as the beginning “stages” of the eruption.

Yeah right a book written in the middle-east 2000 years ago when they didn’t even know that america was a continent predicts the eruption of yellowstone. When in doubt use logic.

This story is a pile of horseshit. If you want some real facts about the Yellowstone Volcano, go directly to the source, the US Geological Survey. Why do people write stuff like this, just to rile up other people? What a crappy site, ncscooper.com Here’s the facts Jack:

Given that they provide an exact date, looks pretty satirical to me.
