Steamboat Geyser

Yellowstone’s Steamboat Geyser erupted twice in quick succession, with one eruption occurring on June 12, and the other, on June 15. The Steamboat Geyser came back to life in April 2017, with the first triple eruption in 15 years. “Yellowstone has an incredible geyser system that is unrelated to magmatic activity – other than the magmatic system basically providing heat,” said volcanologist Janine Krippner.

“If the Wyoming volcano were to erupt an estimated 87,000 people would be killed immediately and two-thirds of the USA would immediately be made uninhabitable. The large spew of ash into the atmosphere would block out sunlight and directly affect life beneath it creating a ‘nuclear winter’. The massive eruption could be a staggering 6,000 times as powerful as the one from Washington’s Mount St Helens,” reports Express.
