While scientists have been unable to pinpoint the exact reasons behind this increased activity, they stress it’s not a sign that an eruption of the Yellowstone supervolcano—on which the park sits—is likely.
Poland told The Washington Post: “There is nothing to indicate that any sort of volcanic eruption is imminent.”
The most recent lava flow from this volcano occurred around 70,000 years ago and most geologists think that the chances of another eruption happening any time soon are extremely remote.
