The real danger of a supervolcano in the USA is proved


Volcanists have reported about real threat for people because of geological activity in the Yellowstone national park. According to scientists, in the area in the future there will be powerful earthquakes measuring 7.0 which can lead to the collapse of rocks, landslides and the human victims. At the same time, eruption of a supervolcano remains improbable, reports the USA Today edition. The Yellowstone supervolcano was thrown up last time 2,5 million years ago. A series of eruptions left huge calderas with a diameter of tens kilometers on a surface, however repetition of such catastrophic events is improbable. By estimates of scientists, the chance of new explosion in a huge caldera is (diameter about 65 kilometers) 1 on 730 thousand. However the probability of strong earthquakes is much higher. So, tremors have led on August 17, 1959 to a destructive landslide which has claimed the lives of 28 people. According to experts, the earthquake of similar force will occur in the near future. However consequences can be much more serious, than in 1959 as the national park is visited by millions of people. In July it was reported that the staff of National park of Grand-Titon which is in 16 kilometers from Yellowstone National Park have closed some sites because of the growing cracks.
