Yellowstone is subject to regular earthquakes beneath the surface, and many believe the constant rumblings are a sign that the supervolcano is about to erupt.
In February alone there were almost 300 minor tremors, leading some to think the end is nigh.
Yellowstone blows every 1,000,000 years or so, with the last eruption coming more than 700,000 years ago.
But a Rabbi in Israel believes the earthquakes are a sign the volcano will blow again soon.
Rabbi Yitzchak Batzri, a known Kabbalist from Jerusalem, analysed two biblical texts.
The first was Psalm 104:32, which reads: “Who looketh on the earth, and it trembleth; He toucheth the mountains, and they smoke.”
The second, more important sign, was in the Book of Zechariah 13:9, which reads: “And I will bring the third part through the fire and will refine them as silver is refined and will try them as gold is tried; they shall call on My name and I will answer them; I will say: ‘It is My people’ and they shall say: ‘Hashem is my God’.”
The rabbi told Breaking News Israel: “The entire world will see earthquakes and eruptions in the end of days.
“It will purify Israel, just as a mikveh (pool of water) purifies, but for the rest of the world it will purify by fire, like a crucible.”
If the Wyoming volcano was to erupt an estimated 87,000 people would be killed immediately and two-thirds of the USA would immediately be made uninhabitable.
The large spew of ash into the atmosphere would block out sunlight and directly affect life beneath it creating a “nuclear winter”.
The massive eruption could be a staggering 6,000 times as powerful as the one from Washington’s Mount St Helens in 1980 which killed 57 people and deposited ash in 11 different states and five Canadian provinces.
If the volcano explodes, a climate shift would ensue as the volcano would spew massive amounts of sulphur dioxide into the atmosphere, which can form a sulphur aerosol that reflects and absorbs sunlight.
