Yellowstone volcano eruption: What would happen if Yellowstone erupted?

Yellowstone volcano is an unpredictable presence in the US, with frequent earthquakes rocking the site.

However, scientists have rubbished predictions the site is “overdue” for an eruption, noting its geology does not follow a schedule.

The volcano last erupted 631,000 years ago, and before then, 1.3 million years ago, putting roughly 725,000 years between each eruption.

As such, the USGS said another eruption is unlikely for 100,000 years, but it may have already had its last hurrah.
