*ALERT* Yellowstone Supervolcano -- National Disaster Imminent
*ALERT* Yellowstone Super volcano -- National Disaster Imminent.
This is not a drill.
In very recent days, the seismic activity of Yellowstone, America's supervolcano, has suddenly reached alarming levels.
For the past week(s) numerous seismic sensors have shown seismic harmonics, but low level.
On the 25th of January, these seismic harmonics picked up and suddenly entered the realm of truly alarming.
In the above image, notice the harmonic "ringing" over the entire day. This is active evidence of "magma on the move" with the chambers actively filling.
There were also two quakes during the day:
2.2 at 04:51:04 UTC - depth 1 km, and
3.9 at 05:10:11 UTC - depth 0.1 km.
Other seismic signatures at distal sensors show evidence of remote dikes being filled by pressured induction.

Yellowstone Seismic Sensor Location Map:
2004-2010 "Extraordinary Caldera Deformation Episode"
(geologic deformation map correlates to "Lake" in above Seismic Sensor Map)
USGS "Live Internet Seismic Server"
Definition: "Harmonic Tremor"
Additional Cause For Concern:
This morning I was in contact with a friend, who has regularly been in contact with a U of U geologist who is a close, personal and family friend of theirs, regarding the alarming upsurge at Yellowstone. Today, as a result of the new data, my contact did phone their close personal friend-geologist at U of U.
Instead of the normal discussion of the seismic data, he was greeted with a rather chilly response. "I can not discuss the current events going on over here".
To my own mind, this is strong evidence of an information lock-down by DHS to prevent panic.
Possibly Unrelated (and unconfirmed):
FEMA Requests Information on the Availability of 140 Million Packets of Food, Blankets, and Body Bags
140 Million is a very large portion of the American populace. Are we expecting a multi-pronged nuclear attack? Or perhaps more likely, "some" unprecedented natural disaster?
Disclaimer: There is every possibility that :IF: Yellowstone erupts, it will not be an explosive, supervolcano level event. However, there's no certainty as to that.

Good disclaimer. Yellowstone could just burp and not BOOOOOOOMMMMMMM!!!!!Democrats : THEY LIE TO US!! THEY PLAY ON OUR FEARS!!

The change from disorganized waves to harmonic waves in just 4 days is unsettling..

It's Obamas fault, he's in the center of the volcano and he's gonna blow **** up!

Here is a video referencing the unusual escalation of volcanism and seismic events at Yellowstone, with brief discussion from U of Utah geologist Bob Smith (not the referenced geologist contact above)

On another forum, that has had a thread dedicated to this subject since 08 with over 650 pages......seems disinterested.
Who here is a geologist?∆

IN 1983 I was one of 10 geologist that went with USGS and studied the active volcanism in Hawaii that had been quiet for 20 years. When we arrived, there was literally *nothing* and we went out and hung out on the beach. I was sitting in an empty lifeguard tower, enjoying a beer, and turned around and saw 'clouds' rising vertically across the cloud-filled sky. We had to drive around the entire Island of Hawaii to return to our operations area, because the road had been, that suddenly, washed out by a lava flow. Eruptions have gone on there pretty much constantly since then.
No, it's not any absolute certainty, but then nature never is. However these seismic signatures at Yellowstone are not just unique, not just alarming, but extremely alarming.

"At the beginning we were concerned it could be leading up to an eruption," said Smith, who co-authored a paper on the surge published in the December 3, 2010, edition of Geophysical Research Letters.
"But once we saw [the magma] was at a depth of ten kilometers, we weren't so concerned. If it had been at depths of two or three kilometers [one or two miles], we'd have been a lot more concerned."∆

Seems to me OP is victim of media hype.
Yellowstone: The public and media obsession with the caldera
So, why is it that when a fairly innocuous paper comes out, everyone gets all riled up? National Geographic had a piece about a December 2010 article in Geophysical Research Letters by Chang and others called "An extraordinary episode of Yellowstone caldera uplift, 2004-2010, from GPS and InSAR observations". Alright, I can see why it might catch a reporter's attention: "extraordinary episode" combined with "caldera uplift" all in the recent past (2004-2010) seems juicy. Well, dissecting the article it seems that the key findings are.............
