Everyone is familiar with the famous Hot Springs and Old Faithful in Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming. When Old Faithful spews; the 200 degree water travels 100 feet into the air. An amazing site. Imagine if you will pressure building 100 miles below sending tons of rock into the sky like a missile traveling 35,000 feet into the air. Planes traveling overhead would be disintegrated and there would be a seismic shock wave on a scale of 11. Within 10 seconds after the blast, the shock wave would travel 250 miles away in under 1 minute at 18,000 mph. 25,000 people would be dead instantly. Within 6 minutes, there would be a mushroom cloud 60 miles high and a tsunami would be created in the lake. A deafening sound of 150 decibels would rupture ear drums. A crater several miles wide would be created sending 37 billion tons flying 200 miles up and would be more powerful than a nuclear bomb killing 35,000. Within 30 minutes after the eruption, power would be out and the US and Canada would be hit with flying debris causing fires. Within 2 hours after the mega eruption, sound waves traveling at 767 mph would be heard around the world. After 1 month, sulfuric dioxide gas would cause acid rain turning into a winter situation that would cause the canals of Venice to be frozen over and blizzards would kill 99% of all plant life and 6 billion would die from lack of food. One year after the explosion, all food would be gone, all animals would be dead and there would be less than 1 billion people left on the planet. You never know what Mother Earth has in store.

I am sure scientists are keeping an eye on building pressure, however, preparation due to a warning would be futile for the majority of us.

Just call me Miss Doomday @crazyhorseladycx . LOL. They'd head to Iceland where there are heated, underground springs and probably some kind of fish.

@nanette64 there's be no time fer folks to do a mass exodus there, 'n then only the 'xtremely wealthy'd make 't.

It's a good thing that's not going to happen.

You just never know @just4him . With all of the fracking going on, the pressure beneath the Earth's surface is being changed. Just look at Oklahoma. Last week they had 14 earthquakes with the highest at 5.0. It's not a far stretch to think that the pressure levels below Yellowstone aren't changing too.

@nanette64 Still, I don't see it happening in my lifetime or in the next hundred years.

I watched the same show and, it's a very scary thing, but I just pray God keeps it under control, if that were to go off all those beautiful animals would undoubtedly be destroyed.

I've been watching and posting about all 10 Doomsday shows (my next one will be the Gamma Ray Burst) and my first thought too is about the animals. @TRBRocks420 .
