Supervolcano Melting Roads At Yellowstone National Park

Acts 2:19 And I will show wonders in the sky above and signs on the earth below, blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.

The massive supervolcano under Yellowstone National Park is melting roads throughout the national park.

The National Park Service is banning visitors from entering some parts of the park because the roads and the ground has become too dangerous for human passage.

“It basically turned the asphalt into soup. It turned the gravel road into oatmeal,” Yellowstone spokesman Dan Hottle said.

Park officials are telling visitors not to hike into the area because what appears to be solid ground could actually be dirt on top of boiling hot water.  They characterized the risk of stepping into potentially fatal pools of water as “high.”

“There are plenty of other great places to see thermal features in the park,” park spokesman Al Nash told The Weather Channel. “I wouldn’t risk personal injury to see these during this temporary closure.”

Scientists last year determined the supervolcano under Yellowstone was twice the size as previously believed by researchers.
