There is a supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park. while it hasnt erupted in more than 600,000 years, the supervolcano is still active — as evidenced by Yellowstone's famous assortment of geothermal features. It's unclear if or when Yellowstone might erupt like that again. The U.S. park service says such an event is "very unlikely in the next thousand or even 10,000 years." Yellowstone may be active, but another supereruption would be foreshadowed by detectable clues that could give humans time to flee. There would be large-scale movements of magma beneath the surface, for example, a process many scientists have expected to unfold over thousands of years.
