Yellowstone geyser erupts for 9th time in months

Could the Yellowstone supervolcano be on the brink of eruption? Top theoretical pysisist Michio Kaku says yes.

(INTELLIHUB) — Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser has become extremely active over the past few months and has erupted a total of nine times in 2018 alone.

The massive geyser which sits atop the world’s largest and most powerful supervolcano spewed its contents hundreds of feet into the air on Monday, raising concerns among some.

Eruptions over the past 6 to 8 weeks have been occurring more frequently than usual which could be a sign the magma chamber is ready to pop.

A January 2015 Intellihub article reported:

Michio Kaku, a famous theoretical physicist, pointed out in a January 2011 newscast which aired on CNN “When it blows [Yellowstone] it could destroy the United States as we know it. […] That’s what is making us nervous”

Shockingly, later in the newscast, Kaku went on to explain how a 1000-mile ring of the U.S. would likely be destroyed if the supervolcano actually went. And to make matters worse, geologists all conclude that the park is long overdue for an eruption.

Is something brewing in Yellowstone?
