52 Volcanoes That Pose A 'Serious Threat' To The US Aren't Being Well Monitored

Prophecy Sign:  Increase in Earthquakes/Volcanoes in diverse places

So if Yellowstone didn't go off, but the 52 other 'serious threat' volcanoes did, what would North America look like in the aftermath?  East of the Rockies might fair alright, but west of the Rockies could be buried under ash and choked with toxic gases.

Therefore I will make the heavens tremble; and the earth will shake from its place at the wrath of the LORD Almighty, in the day of his burning anger. Isaiah 13:13 NIV

52 Volcanoes That Pose A 'Serious Threat' To The US Aren't Being Well Monitored
Compared with Iceland, the U.S. is much more vulnerable to volcanic disasters — and has been failing at monitoring these risks, according to a government report.  Where Iceland has 32 active volcanoes, the United States has 169 — 55 of which are designated as serious threats by the United States Geological Survey's Volcano Hazards Program in the report. Unfortunately, only 3 of these are being monitored with the most up-to-date instruments available. 

This Is What Would Happen If The Yellowstone Supervolcano Erupted
"Thinking about a Yellowstone supereruption is like imagining a large asteroid hitting the Earth," says Jacob Lowenstern, a research geologist with the USGS and Scientist-in-Charge of the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory. "It could happen, but it's not something you can plan for or worry about, because it's such a low-probability event." In fact, Yellowstone hasn't erupted at all for 70,000 years, and the probability of a supereruption in any given year is somewhere between one in 100,000 and one in a million, according to Lowenstern. "The most likely thing to happen when it does erupt is a moderate eruption with a minimal effect outside of Yellowstone."

Armageddon in the making
But in case of a Yellowstone supervolcano eruption not just this beauty will be lost forever, the entire US may be blanketed under feet and feet of ash. Beside, Yellowstone supervolcano eruption will also bring major climatic disaster for the entire region. A latest study gives some inkling into what is going to happen in case of a vicious eruption at Yellowstone.
