Yellowstone Steamboat Geyser Erupting At ‘Unprecedented Rates’

Park officials have stated that Yellowstone volcano’s Steamboat Geyser is erupting at unprecedented rates, matching decades-old records for the amount of scolding water spewed from the ground.  The Steamboat Geyser continues to be an enigma, one in which sparks fears of a massive supervolcano eruption.

The iconic Yellowstone volcano landmark is the world’s tallest and most active geyser but recent activity has gone off the charts. Yellowstone Volcano Observatory (YVO) geologists monitoring the supervolcano complex have noted almost weekly water eruptions from the geyser this year.  The Steamboat geyser has been erupting every 7-10 day for the past six weeks.

According to the Express, during an eruption, it can spew near-boiling jets of water between 10 feet and 300 feet (3 meters to 91.4 meters) high. Eruptions typically last between one and four minutes and can come with intervals of two to five minutes at a time.  Steamboat has so far erupted a total of 29 times in 2018, matching the record for most eruptions in one year from 1964. If the ongoing rate of eruptions continues, officials believe Steamboat will break the record in just days from now.

As of right now, the Norris Geyser Basin, where the Steamboat geyser is located, is closed to the public. However, after December 15 when the winter season begins in Yellowstone, you will be able to visit the geyser. According to KPAX 8, in order to get there, you’ll have to take either a snowcoach or snowmobile tour to Norris and then walk down snow-covered trails and boardwalks to see it.

In the meantime, Yellowstone National Park Spokesperson Morgan Warthin says the geyser’s eruptions are a pretty big deal for scientists. “You know, for scientists, they’re excited. I think everyone’s excited but in particular, the scientists because Steamboat is doing something that it hasn’t done for quite some time. So, for scientists it’s an opportunity to learn more about this really unique, and what was random, geyser that has now become not so random,” said Warthin.

Along with Steamboats eruptions, geologists have also been recording an increase in seismic activity.  A total of 126 earthquakes rocket the park in November. “The largest event was a minor earthquake of magnitude 2.4 located 15 miles north of West Yellowstone, MT, on November 4, at 10:11 AM MST,” said YVO in a statement.  Park officials say that this level of seismic activity is “common” and that there’s no need to be worried the supervolcano will erupt anytime soon.

  1. You deserve a scOlding for misspelling scAlding. As in Caldera, not Coldera.

  2. Beerman says:

    Would be funny with all the stuff going on in the world and all our bombs if we end up getting wiped out by a natural disaster. Oh well.

  3. the blame-e says:

    “. . . matching decades-old records for the amount of scolding water spewed from the ground.”

    “scolding?”

    Scolding?

    Scolding.
    ADJECTIVE “angrily rebuking or reprimanding.” “a scolding glare.”

    I think the word you want “scalding.”

    Scalding.
    ADJECTIVE “very hot; burning.” “she took a sip of scalding tea”

    I just love it when the fake news media tries to attach human characteristics to an inhuman object.

    The next thing will be some NASA scientist wanting to try feeding young virgins (I think we are out of those anyway) to the Yellowstone volcano.

    Although I think we have plenty of angry, scolding Feministas we could try. The volcano could take a sip of a scalding Feminista.

  4. Kevin2 says:

    A catastrophic event, either man made or nature is presented and discussed but what if more than one occur almost simultaneously? It’s not beyond the realm of possibility that a natural occurrence is followed up by a man made one to capitalize on the weakened status of the nation. This is not isolated to against the US as such inhumanity comes from DC think tanks too.

  5. THe Preacher says:

    Dearly Beloved Brethren:

    Turning to ‘Galatians 6.7’ we read:

    “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. The Lord is not mocked”.

    And as it is with a man, so it is with a nation. And insomuch as THIS nation continues to terrorise the planet – having the AUDACITY to theaten nuclear war on The Creation – so God – who has the whole of nature at His disposal – will wage war upon this nation. And it will be over in the blink of an eye.

    THAT concludes this evening’s homily.

  6. Beaumont says:

    “For three things the earth is disquieted, and for four which it cannot bear: For a servant when he reigneth; and a fool when he is filled with meat; For an odious woman when she is married; and an handmaid that is heir to her mistress.”
    — from Prov 30

    “By swearing, and lying, and killing, and stealing, and committing adultery, they break out, and blood toucheth blood. Therefore shall the land mourn, and every one that dwelleth therein shall languish, with the beasts of the field, and with the fowls of heaven; yea, the fishes of the sea also shall be taken away. Yet let no man strive, nor reprove another: for thy people are as they that strive with the priest.”
    — from Hosea 4

    Though I do not consider myself an Arminian, the charismatics report dead, polluted waters running clean and full of fish, and teaming wildlife, following a revival, like an exorcism.

    If not, social and natural upheaval will eventually accomplish the task.

  7. Jimbo says:

    Now That could trigger one dilly of a recession. ( maybe in Mexico & Canada too)

  8. Brian says:

    If Yellowstone erupta:”Smoke ’em if you got ’em!”.

  9. Harbard says:

    It has to be caused by that darn “Global Warming” Macron said so!!! However if it did blow, we will see a lot of global cooling.

  10. Craig Smith says:

    Usually when the government says there’s no reason to panic, then it’s time to panic!

  11. BlueCat57 says:

    Mother Nature is simply relieving her stress. I’ve been hearing about “The Big One” since I was in elementary school in the ’60s. Hasn’t happened, unlikely to happen, if it does happen the sWILLhtf and there isn’t a d@mn thing anyone can do about it. So what if you can survive for a YEAR on your supplies, what are you going to do for the next 5, 10, 15, 20? What would be the upside of surviving? Living like cavemen? Sure, you will be alive, but to what end?
