Most people don’t know that right underneath Yellowstone National Park is one of the world’s largest super volcanoes. Well word is just coming out that Scientists are monitoring some recent disturbing earthquake activity in Yellowstone. There have been more than 250 small earthquakes in the park since Friday.
Small earthquakes can happen from time to time in Yellowstone, but it is very unusual to have this number of quakes over such a short period of time.
The largest tremor happened on Saturday and measured as a magnitude 3.8 quake.
The last major eruption in Yellowstone, around 640,000 years ago, it ejected 8,000 times the ash and lava of Mount St. Helens. A massive eruption would be catastrophic and would cause problems for everyone in the world.

Some Scientists say that an erruption at Yellowstone is long overdue, lets hope that these recent earthquakes are not a sign of things to come.
