WYOMING (INTELLIHUB) — Animals naturally sense disasters way before humans. This internal warning allows them to sense tremors and pressure in the earth’s surface even before volcanic outbreaks activate. Therefore, many animals are able to escape from an area before the eruption occurs.

Bison from Yellowstone can be seen in a recent video fleeing the area in large groups.

According to Rense, “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.”

The number of small earthquakes within the region of the earthquake has also increased in recent years.  Just this week we reported that a 4.8 earthquake hit the northern part of Yellowstone National Park early Sunday, after a smaller series of shocks occurred throughout the region.

Since Thursday, there have been at least 25 recorded earthquakes in the area around Yellowstone National Park.

According to Yellowstone observatory, seismic activity is fairly common in this area, but the earthquakes usually aren’t this powerful.  The observatory reported that 1 to 20 earthquakes occur every day,  however they are very weak, often measuring much less than magnitude 3.
