Poisonous ash and massive destruction: what happens if the Yellowstone supervolcano erupts
Volcanoes have become a hot topic lately. Especially when it comes to their ability to swallow and melt defenseless drones with a video camera. But still I would like to know what will happen if the supervolcano explodes? Edition Yahoo! talked about a scenario with a hypothetical view of the situation when the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming will begin to erupt.
Blogger ReaLifeLore recently posted a photo overlooking the potential catastrophic effects of the eruption. supervolcano. YouTuber provides "answers to questions you've never asked."
In this particular take on an unimaginable catastrophe, RealLifeLore does its best to portray immense destruction. As the blogger notes, the supervolcano, located in the northwestern corner of Wyoming, contains a magma chamber that extends 37 miles (60 km) in length, 18 miles (29 km) in width and five miles (8 km) in depth. If there is enough pressure, the "time bomb" will detonate with enough force to send hundreds of cubic miles of ash into the sky.
RealLifeLore claims that the lava from the volcano will destroy almost everything within a 40-mile (64 km) radius with its explosion. Major cities in the United States such as Denver, Salt Lake City and Boise could be devastated by the eruption.
A huge amount of volcanic material in the atmosphere will subsequently fall out in poisonous ash throughout the United States, mainly in the Northwest. Ashes will kill plants, animals, destroy buildings with their weight, block highways and destroy the country's farmland for a generation.
