The possible eruption (someday) of the super-volcano in Yellowstone is almost laughable for those of us that live here. Sure, it could happen someday, but in our lifetime? Probably not. But, if you've ever wondered what that event might look like, there's a new computer simulation of this terrifying event.
If you thought the Yellowstone super-volcano might be the next tragic event of 2020, it looks like you're gonna have to come up with a new theory. The USGS just shared that earthquakes in the region were way down in July from previous months.
It's not breaking news (no earthquake pun intended) that Yellowstone has a lot of earthquakes. But, even by the normal high standards, the USGS has confirmed there were a lot of earthquakes near the park in May alone.
