The timebomb under Yellowstone: Experts warn of 90,000 immediate deaths and a 'nuclear winter' across the US if supervolcano erupts

Prophecy Sign:  Earthquakes & Volcanoes in diverse places

Have you noticed how earthquake and volcanic activity has increased on a nearly straight line trend upwards in the last decade or so?  A sign of the last days?

This is what the LORD Almighty says: 'In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and what is desired by all  nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory,' says the LORD Almighty. Haggai 2:6-7 NIV

The timebomb under Yellowstone: Experts warn of 90,000 immediate deaths and a 'nuclear winter' across the US if supervolcano erupts 
A supervolcano in the heart of America's northwest has the potential to blanket the US in a 'nuclear winter'. If it were to erupt, the Yellowstone supervolcano would be one thousand times as powerful as the 1980 Mount St Helens eruption, experts claim. While it has lain dormant for more than 70,000 years, scientists say that we can't rule out the possibility eruption this may some day take place - although they say the chances are extremely slim.  The volcano at Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming and Montana sits atop a huge reserve of molten rock and last erupted 640,000 years ago. It is one of the largest active continental silicic volcanic fields in the world. Silicic is used to describe magma or igneous rock rich in silica. Experts say there is a one in 700,000 annual chance of a volcanic eruption at the site.  

Seismologists say a year-long swarm of 5,610 earthquakes in Nevada linked to volcanic activity
Seismologists say a year-long swarm of earthquakes in northwest Nevada could be linked to volcanic activity. The University of Nevada's Reno Nevada Seismological Laboratory announced Tuesday that there have been 5,610 earthquakes in the swarm that started in July 2014 in the Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge near the Oregon border. More than 200 have registered at a magnitude of 3 or greater, which is enough to be felt by the ranchers and residents nearby. The largest one hit on Nov. 6 with a magnitude of 4.7, although there's also been a recent flare-up since mid-July. Officials say volcanic activity can't be ruled out but there hasn't been direct evidence connecting it. Nevada is the third most seismically active state in the country, behind California.
