VOLCANO NEWS -
And it's going to explode some day.
A mega eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano will immediately wipe out all life over two thirds of the United States. And much of surviving life in North America would perish soon after due to lack of food, as a huge expanse of the continent would be covered with ash. Abrupt climate change would ensue, as the massive ash cloud would travel all around the planet, covering sunlight and raining ash.
Now scientists have discovered that this ticking time bomb is even larger than thought. The magma reservoir is at least 50% larger.

WORLD LARGEST VOLCANO SET TO ERUPT?
Daily Mail reporting in 1911: It would explode with a force a thousand times more powerful than the Mount St Helens eruption in 1980. Spewing lava far into the sky, a cloud of plant-killing ash would fan out and dump a layer 10ft deep up to 1000 miles away. Two thirds of the United States could become uninhabitable as toxic air sweeps through it.
