  • Yellowstone Volcano?

    Best answer: <I was watching on YouTube saying that Yellowstone might explode on the [23rd] of this [month]> There's all kinds of rubbish on YouTube; nobody is required to actually know what they're talking about to post videos there. Nobody can predict when natural disasters will occur at all, never mind to the day. At least you didn't uncritically accept what nonsense you heard there, and had the good sense to ask here (though there are plenty of wrong answers here as well), but always be skeptical of any claims you see online unless you can verify them with bonafide sources.
    .
    <It said that [Steamboat] [geyser] [erupted for] the 9th time.> The Wikipedia article says this geyser erupted 29 times in 1964, and Yellowstone didn't erupt then. That said, Yellowstone could begin erupting tomorrow, or 10,000 years from now. But anyone claiming to know the day is just pulling your chain.

  • Can you sense an earthquake before it happens?

    I live in a region prone to frequent earthquakes. During the year and a half that I have lived here, three small (yet notable) earthquakes have taken place here, ranging from 2.5-3.5 in magnitude between the hours of 1am-6:30am. None were strong enough to cause damage, but enough to where you feel it. Each time... show more
    I live in a region prone to frequent earthquakes. During the year and a half that I have lived here, three small (yet notable) earthquakes have taken place here, ranging from 2.5-3.5 in magnitude between the hours of 1am-6:30am. None were strong enough to cause damage, but enough to where you feel it. Each time prior to the earthquakes, I had woken up approximately 5-10 minutes prior. Is there an explanation for this or is it just a weird coincidence? I dont frequently wake up during the night, so this is not a normal thing for me.

  • Are the Hawaiian islands a result of volcanic eruptions.?

    Best answer: Yes. There is a "hot spot" beneath the Pacific tectonic plate where a very long and enduring column of magma is rising from deep inside our planet. As the plate slowly moves over the hot spot and toward the northwest, the upwelling magma breaks through the Earth's crust and makes a row of islands and... show more
    Best answer: Yes.
    There is a "hot spot" beneath the Pacific tectonic plate where a very long and enduring column of magma is rising from deep inside our planet. As the plate slowly moves over the hot spot and toward the northwest, the upwelling magma breaks through the Earth's crust and makes a row of islands and sea mounts. The results can be noticed in Google Maps of the north Pacific ocean.
    As the plate moves the islands beyond the hot spot, the islands begin to erode away.

  • Is the world going to run out of drinkable water soon (like this century) or are we doing things to keep it from happening?

    Water at Walmart went up in price. I’m imagine other places too. Water fountains don’t even have fresh water anymore. Look at Flint. Between pollution and our overpopulated planet (it is VERY overpopulated) and people living longer AND developed nations becoming able to afford more resources it means more... show more
    Water at Walmart went up in price. I’m imagine other places too. Water fountains don’t even have fresh water anymore. Look at Flint. Between pollution and our overpopulated planet (it is VERY overpopulated) and people living longer AND developed nations becoming able to afford more resources it means more consumption meaning less things we need. WATER is a must. But from what I read: A leaked government report said water will run out by year 2024-2030!

  • Why wouldn't a beach disappear?

    I know it's a stupid question, but I don't understand why a beach wouldn't get eaten away when the ocean waves hit it and wash away the sand?

    I have been reading a lot about the recent eruptions of Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, and from my studies on Google Satellite, pretty much the entire southeast side of the Big Island of Hawaii between Hawaiian Paradise Park and Naalehu is a known lava flow area that gets frequent lava flows from Kilauea's crater. And nothing, not even steel and concrete, stands even the slightest chance against a lava flow which easily reaches upwards of 2,000 degrees Fahrenheit. So why do people even bother to build homes and businesses in areas known to get repeatedly over run by lava flows such as the southeast side of Hawaii's Big Island? I mean, why not even prohibit any kind of construction, for example, on the entire southeast side of the Big Island of Hawaii between Hawaiian Paradise Park and Naalehu and between Route 11 and the ocean? Anything built within that entire area, Kilauea's lava will just burn it all to the ground.

  • How do you tell if tides will be calm before you go to the beach?

    Best answer: Weather governs the waves. Storms off-shore are usually the source of roughest surf. Tides aren't calm or rough, the surf (the waves) is. It is true that, generally speaking, outgoing tide will be less rough at the beach itself than incoming tide, but that is a secondary part of the picture. The wave action... show more
    Best answer: Weather governs the waves. Storms off-shore are usually the source of roughest surf. Tides aren't calm or rough, the surf (the waves) is. It is true that, generally speaking, outgoing tide will be less rough at the beach itself than incoming tide, but that is a secondary part of the picture. The wave action out in the open bay or ocean is what will govern the wave activity on the shore.
