    Your sister will have to move to northern Yukon.

    And no, there are no forecasts for volcanic eruptions in the Rocky Mountains in the near future.

    Yellowstone is erupting all the time, every time a geyser goes off. Yellowstone is NOT overdue for a super eruption.

    It is unlikely to erupt within our lifetimes. There will be warnings ahead of time like many quakes above magnitude 5.0, lots of gas release, and ground deformation. Yellowstone is arguably the most highly monitored volcanic region on Earth. If there is an eruption, it may not be a large one either.

    Will the Yellowstone volcano erupt? Yes, it's very probable that it will have another eruption at some point.

    Will the Yellowstone volcano erupt soon? Highly unlikely. Scientist monitor the area constantly, and there simply aren't any signs of an imminent eruption anytime in the immediate future.

    So your sister is a volcanologist studying Yellowstone, is she...?

    The scientists that live in Yellowstone and study it every day have stated they don't have any evidence it is going to erupt within the next few months.

    So either your sister knows something none of the scientists know, or she is getting her science facts from some nutjob.

    I do not think this is going to happen. It would be a real surprise.

    It seems to me a rather stupid thing to do. Moving is extremely stressful not to mention expensive. It must be on another level when moving from one country to another. And, to do it for this reason is incredibly stupid.

    Yes, at some point in the future Yellowstone is going to erupt. It may have happened between the time I write this answer and it is read. It may not happen until everyone alive today is long dead and forgotten. Yes, it will erupt. When? Nobody knows.
