Yellowstone eruption fears: 41 earthquakes hit Yellowstone amid concerns of overdue blast 1

At the same time, the world-famous Steamboat Geyser erupted twice last month, on January 9 and January 23 respectively.

The current volcano alert level for Yellowstone is NORMAL and there are no indications of an eruption brewing deep underground.

Yellowstone’s last major eruptions took place some 640,000 years, 1.3 million and 2.1 million years ago.
