1Dormant Volcano Awakens
THOUSANDS of miles of red hot magma is waiting to burst from the world’s most dangerous volcano, experts in Britain have revealed.
Yellowstone super volcano in Wyoming, US, has laid dormant for 70,000 years with its chancing of blowing being slim – until now.
Boffins have now found 11,000 cubic miles of magma is sitting in underground reservoirs that are acting like “sponges” and are ready to burst into the atmosphere.
So much of it spewing into the air could block out sunlight and trigger a nuclear winter or even a mini ice age.
