You’ve in all likelihood heard that the Yellowstone Super-volcano is possibly erupting on the day after today. However, it could fail to erupt entirely. If the Yellowstone does erupt, it could kill the rest of the people who is living in Wyoming, and the ashes would block the daylight and engender a great devastation. However, super volcanoes are seemingly dangerous a lot. That’s why the experts insist to keep our eyes open, and gasp for air.
If the supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park erupted tomorrow, life as we know it would come

Ash from a mega-eruption at Yellowstone would spread across the U.S., covering nearby states such as Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado and Montana in up to three feet of ash, according to a 2014 study of what might happen if a supervolcano erupted, and blanketing the Midwest and other parts of the U.S., killing animals and plants, affecting the power grid and destroying buildings, causing a volcanic winter.

Up to now, scientists thought another supervolcano eruption might not occur for centuries, but a new study by researchers at Arizona State University found it could happen much sooner — in just decades, according to National Geographic.
The ASU scientists studied minerals in fossilized ash around the volcano and discovered that the critical changes in temperature and composition that would signal an impending eruption occurred in a matter of decades, not centuries, National Geographic reported.
