Yellowstone Public Seismographs Taken Offline – Wait ’til You See Why!

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The public seismographs which monitor earthquakes in and around the Yellowstone super-volcano are presently OFFLINE, and the public is not presently able to see seismic activity there.

Being able to see what is taking place in and around Yellowstone is of great interest to many people because if there is a sudden flurry of earthquake activity, it COULD — but not necessarily — signal a pending eruption.

Since Yellowstone is the only “super volcano” on the North American continent, and is VERY geologically active, if an eruption were to actually take place, the western two-thirds of the United States would POTENTIALLY be hit with volcanic ash and a severe disruption of life.

So why are the public seismographs from the US Geological Survey (USGS) OFFLINE (to the public) today?  No one is providing any answers.

Even more peculiar, the privately-funded seismographs from the University of Utah . . . are also OFFLINE (to the public) right now.  No one is providing any explanation for this either.

After poking around to various folks involved in the University of Utah Seismic Center, one person at that facility “quietly” e-mailed us a single graphic image which gave us pause:

In the image below, the Green Colored line represents the border of Yellowstone National Park.  The (barely visible) gold line represents the mouth of the super-volcano, known as the Caldera.  The red dots in the image below show all the earthquakes that have recently taken place at the Yellowstone super-volcano.  Maybe this is why the public seismographs are suddenly OFFLINE to the general public?

We are not seismologists, but it looks (to us) as though something is happening at Yellowstone.  We’re seeking out professionals to interpret what we’re seeing and will update this story when that info becomes available.

In the meantime, as untrained laymen, the red dots in the image above tell us something “not good” seems to be taking place at Yellowstone.


Established on March 1, 1872, Yellowstone National Park is America’s first national park. The park was dedicated by President Ulysses S. Grant.



Yellowstone National Park was established 20 years before Montana, Idaho and Wyoming were granted statehood.Yellowstone National Park is 63 miles long and 54 miles wide.

Yellowstone National Park is larger than the states of Rhode Island and Delaware combined.

The Super-Volcano

Far beneath the ground in Yellowstone National Park, is something called a “Hot Spot.”  It is a place where the molten core of the earth is closer to the surface than at other places.



As the vast North American Continental Plate shifts over the years, different parts of the surface end-up being above the “hot spot.”

The image below shows the location of the “hot spot” over millions-of-years:


Location of Hot Spot expressed in MILLIONS-OF-YEARS

Geologists were able to pinpoint these locations by analyzing soil, where they found volcanic-related materials and melted rock buried under various layers of dirt.


From time to time, the “hot-spot” bursts through the surface with an eruption.  These are extremely RARE occurrences, which take place – on average – every 600,000 years or so.  As of today, Geologists claim it has been about 640,000 years since the last big eruption, so by some standards, we may be a bit overdue.

Volcanoes erupting is nothing new, but Yellowstone is not a typical volcano; it is a super-volcano. There are only thirty (30) super-volcanoes on earth and Yellowstone is the ONLY one on land.  All the rest are beneath the oceans of the world.

The image below explains the utterly terrifying difference between a “typical” volcano and Yellowstone.

At the top left of the USA map, the gold-colored area over Oregon, Washington and Idaho shows the famous “Mount St. Helens eruption” of 1980 and how far ash was ejected from that (typical) volcano.

Lower and to the right, shows the horrifying power of Yellowstone eruptions dating back as far as two+ million years (or so) ago. The ash covered two-thirds of the USA!



The ash is only a small part of the story.  When Yellowstone erupts, there will be an enormous “kill zone.”  Inside this “kill zone” nothing . . . . absolutely NOTHING . . . . will survive. The ash in this area is known as a pyroclastic flow.  It will be so hot that anything it touches will be incinerated on contact.  Humans, animals, trees, grass, cars, trucks, buildings.  All destroyed immediately.

The next, even larger area, is called the “hot ash” zone.  Most things in this area will be ignited by the hot ash and will burn.  People, animals, cars, buildings.  There will be so much fire and so much horror, that very little will survive.



Beyond the Kill Zone and the Hot Ash Zone is the “raining ash zone.”  In this area, volcanic ash with rain down for weeks!   But what is commonly called “ash” is not really “ash” at all; it is pulverized ROCK.  If a human inhales it, the rock turns into a mud-like substance in the lungs, suffocating the person to death.

The ash also clogs vehicle air filters, stalling vehicles because they cannot get air into the fuel injection systems.  When stranded motorists exit their vehicles to see what’s wrong, they breath the ash, and that’s usually the end of them, too.

Anyone in the raining ash zone without a NIOSH filter mask rated at N-95 or N-100 will be dead in minutes; for lack of an $8 mask!

The image below shows  how deep the ash is expected to be in various locations.  Bear in mind that one inch equals 25.4 millimeters, click image to enlarge.



“Scare” in June, 2015

Yellowstone National Park was hastily evacuated in June, 2015 due to concerns that the super volcano could erupt sooner than expected. Researchers on-site claimed that the 640,000 year-old Yellowstone Caldera had exhibited a sudden spike in activity which indicated the volcano could erupt in as little as two weeks. They pointed out that an eruption of the volcano could very well throw all of United States into a 200-year-long volcanic winter, with ash blotting out the sun, and pyroclastic flow irreparably damaging the surrounding ecosystem.

This undated photo provided by the National Park Service shows damage to a Yellowstone National Park road caused by the park???s ever-changing thermal features in the park in Wyoming. The hot, damaged pavement has prompted park officials to close Firehole Lake Drive and access to some geysers and thermal features at the height of summer tourist season. (AP Photo/Yellowstone National Park)

Also in 2015, several roads through Yellowstone were closed after the pavement began to melt and bubble due to extreme temperatures rising beneath the earth’s surface. No one has yet been able to pinpoint what triggered this sudden surge of volcanic action. Officials monitoring the volcano were primarily concerned with keeping curious thrill-seekers out of the park, as well as safely vacating surrounding areas to prevent potential casualties.
At the time Senior Volcanologist, Richard Dunn, gave the following report in regards to the volcano’s alarming activity. “This is something which could have never been accurately predicted ahead of time. This unforeseen flux of activity is quite concerning, and flies in the face of all our previous studies regarding this particular volcano. Our chief concern at this point are getting people to safety.”

DO NOT PANIC; Just Be Aware


Please don’t go off, half-cocked, and start calling authorities about this report because there is absolutely no need to do that; if they feel there is anything the public needs to know, they will tell us. 

We are simply reporting the OFFLINE status of the public seismographs.  For all we know, it’s just some silly computer glitch that might be fixed tomorrow.

Of course, there is that very first graphic image above with all the red dots showing the HUGE amount of earthquakes taking place at Yellowstone, but even though it was quietly sent to us, we do not know how to properly INTERPRET that graphic; it might be nothing out of the ordinary at all.

The purpose of this article and the intent of the authors is merely to report news of an unusual outage of important public information.  It seems wise to us to explain what’s at stake if, Heaven forbid, something were to go wrong at Yellowstone.  We cannot emphasize enough, we have no evidence whatsoever of anything wrong right now and you should NOT panic or change your life in any way at all on account of this report.  Just be aware.  Maybe it’s nothing.

      Ponder this, what if, the coming meteor strikes, do not land randomly, but hit with PRECISION? what would that do to all these worldly theories?

      it has happened before.

      Jos 10:11 And it came to be, as they fled before Yisra’ĕl and were on the descent of Bĕyth Ḥoron, that יהוה threw down large hailstones from the heavens on them as far as Azĕqah, and they died. There were more who died from the hailstones than those whom the sons of Yisra’ĕl had slain with the sword.

      hmmmmm. Wonder,, if like Nineveh, they get 40 days warning? that would be interesting. :cool:

      “the notice was on the board, in the Spiritual Wilderness, for all to see”

      Earth Quake swarms does not mean an imminent eruption and to unduly alarming a population that is not going to leave their homes is asinine.

      • LifeIs

        (1) Your reasoning is circular. We don’t know if alarm is “undue” or not. We don’t know who might choose to relocate.

        (2) No, earthquake swarms do not mean an imminent eruption. But an eruption will be preceded by them.

        (3) You are saying alarms should be reserved for a select class of people. It’s not like they threw the seismographs away, they are just not sharing with us.

        (4) There is nothing wrong with telling adult citizens about dangers.

        (5) Our leaders are in a psychotic bubble, and their only coping strategy, in ANY situation, is to hide the truth as much as they possibly can. That is dangerous and alarming.

        (6) Planet X has increased our volcanic activity and our earthquake activity, by (a) moving the center of mass of the solar system (b) repelling our planet, through the interaction of our charge fields (c) altering the flow of electricity through the solar system and into the Earth.

    • Morgawr

      Knowing our elite Governments, the 1st thing to do is PANIC, they would happily herd all the people in the danger zone if they could, next best thing, don’t tell anyone and get as many of them as possible, of course you could keep an eye on who’s doing a runner from the danger zone, but don’t be fooled if you don’t see all the politicians running, because many who think their in the club ARE NOT and their days are as close as ours.

      • 2QIK4U

        People will be climbing the FEMA CAMP’S WALL WANTING IN. Easiest human round up in history! Ironically it makes perfect sense.

      • LifeIs

        We won’t see them running. For example, if the Prez wanted to survive the pole shift in Patagonia (New Israel) he would fly to there (like he did in late March) and just not come back. We’d see a body double exit his airplane back in the USA.

        Another example, if some bank vice presidents, groomed to be rulers after the cataclysm, wanted to head for their bunkers, they would fake their deaths. And we would see headlines about bankers jumping from roofs and such. (as we have)

        One thing they know how to do is lie.

      so you have one or two more earthquakes lets all run to the HILLS lol

    • Anonymous

      This chart looks like all combined earthquakes in Yellowstone since 1911. Look at all of the 6 earthquakes. I’m not sure, but I don’t think all of those happened last night.

      God Bless The Earthquake #FEEEEEEER POOOOOOOOORN, It’s A Refreshing Change From Nibiru.

      • srsly1

        I was just about to post the same thing. He says “recent” earthquakes. I’m guessing recent meaning in the last several years. Considering Yellowstone has anywhere from 1,000 to 3,000 earthquakes a year, this is hardly shocking.

    • Obama is Lying to America

      :idea: PlanetX is causing the increase in earthquakes and it’s gonna blow soon along with all globally.
      Right now deep in the southwest(view from Ga. usa) extremely orange skies and very bright.
      Red iron oxide anyone? It’s the debris cloud surrounding PlanetX. :arrow:

      Now, cross this map, with the one of flooding. :smile:

      • b4

        that map is of all the earthquakes for the last 50 years–this article is total nonsense –the u of u is still online–the usgs sismic is still online for yellowstone– all the info for yellowstone still there–dont know what heck your looking at–oh–put your glasses on!

    • Scorpallain

      This is a map of past earthquakes in the Yellowstone area. However, late last week, early in the morning, i logged into a regular earthquake site that shows all earthquakes all over the world and there was a whole lot of earthquakes showing up at Yellowstone in different parts of the Park. When i logged in again to look, because it had peeked my curiosity all the quakes were gone there..not a single quake remained. Then the sizemos were taken offline…curious indeed.

    • Geeper

      “In the meantime, as untrained laymen, the red dots in the image above tell us something “not good” seems to be taking place at Yellowstone.”

      Not good, got it. Thanks, untrained laymen!

    • Eggzactly

      I had that place on my bucket list of things to see before I die. I am going to Pass on that place now. :grin:

    • doggy do

      Huh, well would ya look at this: a record of yellowstone activity as of April:

      and here i thought all along I could believe EVERYTHING i read in BIS.

      First, how can you people continue to believe, much less read, this crap? Everything, it seems according to all who fill BIN with BIS, is either under control of aliens from Niburu or planet X, Obama and the illuminati, Obama or the illuminati, Putin, or Obama, the devil, the pope, the pope and the devil, Obama working with Putin and G. Soros, and/or the illuminati—whom no one EVER identifies specifically–everything and everyone knowing EVERYTHING, but little ol YOU. So, you wind up being afraid of EVERYTHING. No wonder you’re addicted. Addicted to the rush of pure, adulterated fearporn. Can’t get enough of fearporn crack. Because you’re so afraid, because you’re overwhelmed by the 24-hour news cycle, the onrush of everything new from LED TV to the concept of life on other planets, to manned space flight to Mars, you feel powerless. So, you wallow in FEAR. You LOVE FEARPORN. Probably wank a bone or two over it. So, let’s review: CAN YOU SAY TYPICAL NAZI FASCIST TACTIC—TELL A LIE AND HOPE IT TURNS INTO THE TRUTH?

      We’re now being afflicted with at ongoing BIS “the world will end” fearporn reports, thus earning the posters enough money to buy more Powerball tickets that another fearporn artist has posted to say that the Powerball is an illuminati trick even though another poster had earlier posted that ‘all the illuminati have gone to Planet X’ fearporn even though they haven’t, and it’s usually some factory worker shoprat who wins any lottery.
      We’re now afflicted with the ongoing ‘Yellowstone will blow up any day’ fearporn, even though it’s not. Whatabunchacrap. It will blow, someday, maybe a few thousand years away, but not without a lot of warnings.
      We’re also now being afflicted with the much-anticipated and completely expected
      ‘Antonin Scalia was murdered’ BIS fearporn. So, from that we can conclude that every famous—or infamous—person ever has never died from natural causes, such as an undiscovered aneurysm, a heart attack, stroke, or some other non- ‘nefarious’ reason. It’s always that someone famous, all famous people, were murdered, and therefore are great for getting clicks on websites, thus earning the poster money so he or she can post more fearporn. Must be a lot of busy murderers out there. Gimme a break.

      We’ve gone through the 17 people shot in new Orleans and no media covered it even though media across the country covered it’ fearporn.
      We’re now enduring the latest belch of bullcrap, that the United Nations will take over the U.S.’ fearporn, even though they CONSIST OF 97,000 troops that ALSO INCLUDES 35 U.S. TROOPS (Look up the TRUTH here: ) She continues to be savvy in earning money from posting BS at this site that appeals only to fear’ fearporn. With I’m sure owners of many of the 300 million guns in America reading this, Why Do some of You People Continue To Believe This, And HER? Gotta Love that false flag fearporn!!
      We’ve gone through the ‘Putin, the devil incarnate (true), will start WW III,’ and ‘Putin, an angel of god (false, in fact, false flag), will prevent WW III’ double-dip fearporns.
      Former CIA—yeah right—agent says Obama’s a crook’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘Obama’s going to be impeached’ fearporn. Yeah, right.
      We’ve gone through the ‘Putin will destroy Turkey (false flag)’fearporn.
      We’ve gone through ‘everything that is real is a false flag and that a false flag is a false flag for a false flag, but whatever you say against me saying it’s all a false flag is a false flag because they’ll never be a true flag because I get paid too much to say everything’s a false flag false flag’ fearporn
      We’ve gone through ‘the niburians are coming, the niburians are coming’ fearporn about once every, oh, six weeks, whenever the science fiction writer of this particular line of crap sees his bank account getting low, or wants a good laugh from setting off the usual bunch of yahoos into a fearporn frenzy’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘there are thousands of nasty middle-east people who want to kill us all operating in plain view and no one does anything about it even though the only ones who say they exist are fearporn sites’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘21st century version of the “yellow peril” about Syrians coming to the U.S. and they’ll all be terrorists and we won’t find out enough about them’ Fearporn. Love their food, by the way. Unless….acchhh!! I’ve… been…acchhh!!…poisoned….’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘Nibiru will pass earth in 2017, giving the writer who came up with that bit of fiction plenty of time to fill his checking account with revenue from two years of ad clicks’ fearporn.

      we’ve gone through the ‘Texas will be taken over’ by the country it already is a part of fearporn.
      We’ve recently entered the ‘Alaska will be taken over by the country it already is a part of’ fearporn era. Good choice, since the state is full of paranoids and escapists, both from reality and the law.
      We’ve gone through the ‘military exercises really a takeover of the U.S. by the U.S.’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through ‘texas town taken over by its own army’ ha ha, just kidding’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ”all the school gun murders are false flags to take our guns’–I still have my seven or eight– fearporn. How about YOU?
      We’ve gone through the ‘no one caries a gun like that, must be wrong/fake/an alien/a russian spy take your pick’ fearporn even though if you’ve EVER had any experience carrying an m-16-type weapon, you’d know they were made to be carried almost anyway you want to carry them. So stupid.
      We’ve gone through the ‘Obama’s coming to take my guns’ –I still have mine, by the way, how many of yours has he taken’—fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘all school gun murders were done by space aliens’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘all school gun murders were fake’ fearporn—try telling that to: the EMS workers, the DOCTORS, the NURSES, the POLICE, the TEACHERS, the MEs, the PROSECUTORS, and most of all, parents of the DEAD all of whom you think had a meeting to whip up a vast conspiracy that your confused, possibly drug-laced little mind has talked you into believing—which makes me want to puke in your face’ fearporn. See NAZI reference above for more puke-invoking crap.
      We’ve gone thru the ‘world will end sept. 25′ fearporn.
      We’ve gone thru ‘the whole world is under the devil’s control—guess that means the writer of the trash who decreed that, too’ fearporn.

      We’ve gone through ‘weather chaos will erupt in 500 days, giving the writer enough time to make hundreds of posts, earning him/her lots of money; pretty clever I’d say’ fearporn.

      We’ve gone through the ‘they’re knocking at my door to take my guns—even though I still have mine’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through ‘the stock market will crash in April, June, October/take your pick of dates’ fearporn.

      We’ve gone through ‘the supercollider at CERN is a gateway to the devil because it’s science-based’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘supercollider at CERN is permanently closed’ even though it isn’t fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘they’re spreading poison in the contrails seen from jets even through they’ve existed since we began flying in the stratosphere’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through, numerous times, that ‘WW III is starting any day’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘anyone who disagrees with me is a CIA operative troll, hey what a good way to discredit someone, just fling out an accusation with absolutely no proof, just like Joe Mccarthy in the 50s, a great ‘when did you stop beating your wife statement’’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘anyone who disagrees with me is a govt. operative…hey that’s a great way to discredit anyone, with ‘proof’ that someone made up 15 minutes ago, or presenting absolutely no proof at all, just say it anyway because the people who believe that aliens are living in their basements will definitely believe this’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through the ‘I’m so important, the government has assigned one person to each of us on BIN to monitor me and tell us that no, there is no second moon orbiting the earth, that UFOs are not hiding in the earth’s core, that there is no ‘man in the Mars’ staring at us from that planet even though we, in our current state of dementia, know that there is so I’d better put on my aluminum foil hat now’ fearporn.
      We’ve gone through ‘the moon will be hit by an asteroid—maybe’ fearporn.
      Who wants to add more here? I’m betting very few are, because so many of you are living in a fantasy world that is the internet.
      What you should be asking yourselves is, why do i enjoy being afraid of the boogeyman so much? It’s not Halloween for another year, so why?
      Does anyone reading this crap with enough sense to climb out of their ‘build your end of the world shelter now fearporn’ plans even see ANY kind of pattern here with the crap that is posted on BIN?
      I know batboy would. But he’s retired and living in a cave, unless he’s infected with white nose syndrome.
      I’m adding to this list constantly, because the writers of this stuff lost their jobs at Weekly World News or The Enquirer and now make money this way, writing fearporn while locked in their little apartments, because ‘I’m too afraid to speak to anyone for fear they’re an alien, or a government agent, Obama or Putin spy of Obama/Putin spy, or Obama and Putin wearing a disguise, who, apparently out of my own twisted sense of clinical narcissistic or severe dissociative disorder, think I’m the most important person in the world and therefore worthy of being spied on, or…take your pick, but mostly because I make lots of money doing it’ fearporn.
      It’s to MAKE THE POSTERS OF THIS CRAP MONEY, people. Nothing more. They feed on your fear. YOU feed on their delusions.
      Will you be joining the ranks of ‘the guy who shot his friend during a zombie movie marathon because he was so crapped he thought his friend was turning into a zombie even though there is no such thing’ fearporn?
      And what does that say about YOU?

      P.S. Better look again: Obama IS finishing his second term :lol:
