Concern Grows After Yellowstone's Largest Geyser Erupts For 8th Time Since March

Forbes, June 6, 2018


Trevor Nace Contributor, 11:19am.

Yellowstone National Park's largest geyser, Steamboat, is puzzling scientists after it erupted for the eighth time since March. The most recent eruption, occurring at 9:04 a.m. on Monday morning shot boiling-hot water hundreds of feet into the air, followed by hours of steam billowing out from the geyser.
Steamboat Geyser, unlike the regular Old Faithful Geyser, erupts very infrequently.

It's thought that it's part of an old "super Volcano" so it's got serious potential to do worse than Krakatoa or Vesuvius Pompeii type damage.
nothing to do but pray. this sure aint cause by automobile emissions.

There is promising research on predictive technology for earthquakes and maybe volcanoes.

Actually the devastation potential will be world wide and last for generations. Assuming humans survive.

Most of the USA will suffer drastic climate changes after the initial flooding, darkness dust and pyro plastic flows annihilate much of the great northwest. Standard wind patters will cover much of the upper and middle mid-west with toxic gasses and volcanic ash
