Volcano Activity Strengthening Around The World - Costa Rica in the cross hairs?

edited December 2016 in Natural Disasters

Volcanoes Campi Flegrei in Italy, Sakurajima in Japan, Pavlof in Alaska, Popocatépetl in Mexico and Iturrialba in Costa Rica among others showed signs of reawakening in the last semester of 2016, sounding the alarm among the scientist community that warns about a chain of imminent eruptions.

 Throughout history, volcanoes have inspired fear and admiration as well. Vesubio (Italy), Mount Tambora (Indonesia), Laki (Iceland), Mount St. Hellen (USA) and Nevado del Ruiz (Colombia) are just some of the volcanoes that have ravaged entire populations in different periods of time, killing thousands of people and turning vast areas into a desert of fire, ashes and sulfuric gases. But, strange as it may sound, volcano activity has become an item of the so-called eco/adventure tourism, thanks to the unmatched, unique spectacle of lights and sound that offers a moderated eruption.

According to experts, it takes 500 years for a supervolcano to reawaken, even less. And this seems to be the case of Campli Flegrei in the west of Naples, Italy, an extensive volcanic that boasts 24 craters and its cauldron-like depression was formed 39,000 years before as part of the biggest eruption that Europe has experienced in the last 200,000 years.

    A few months ago, I watched a documentary about the Yellowstone super volcano.  It turns out that Yellowstone may not be a super volcano after all.  Geologists are starting to suspect that Yellowstone may actually be a hyper volcano.  Truly terrifying.  Apparently, a hyper volcano can send bus size boulders sub-orbital. 

    If the politicians treat people this poorly when they're armed to the teeth,

    just imagine what they'll be willing to do once they've disarmed everyone.

    ...I hadn't even heard of a "hyper volcano" until now. So basically, it gets even worse for us?

    I hadn't heard of a hyper volcano either, before that documentary. 

    A super volcano could create an ash cloud that would circle the world.  Imagine a volcano that can cause huge boulders to impact in Europe and Asia.  Not to mention the ash cloud.

    I've been trying to re-located that documentary, I believe it was a Discovery channel show.

    My bad memory ran away on me.  The documentary I talked about wasn't a documentary.  It was an episode of "Doomsday: 10 ways the world will end".  It was a speculation on the effects if Yellowstone was a hyper-volcano.  Sorry.
