Yellowstone Supervolcano in the US is one of the most feared volcanos in the world, and scientists believe we are right to be cautious. Although here are no immediate signs the caldera in Wyoming is about to blow, experts believe it could erupt one day as one is said to be overdue, and the consequences will be catastrophic. And it will not be the initial explosion which will put an end to life on Earth, although it would kill an estimated 87,000 people immediately and make two-thirds of the USA immediately uninhabitable, but the aftermath of it.YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. (AP) — A noisy geyser in Yellowstone National Park has roared back to life after three years of quiet.
Ledge Geyser is one of the biggest in Yellowstone’s Norris Geyser Basin.
The Billings Gazette reports the geyser shoots hot water at an angle up to 125 feet (38 meters) high and a distance of 220 feet (67 meters).
Yellowstone geologist Jeff Hungerford says Ledge Geyser is noisy because its water and steam must pass through a narrow opening in the ground.
Yellowstone has 1,300 thermal features and 500 geysers, more than anywhere else on Earth. Some geysers such as Old Faithful are predictable but most, like Ledge Geyser, erupt erratically.
