Grand Teton National Park: Officials close large area due to massive fissure opening

A fissure has opened up in Grand Teton National Park just 60 miles (100km) from the Yellowstone volcano, prompting officials to immediately shut down the area
Grand Teton National Park officials in Wyoming have closed certain areas to tourists due to a 100-foot crack.

Superintendent David Vela said, “Human safety is our number one priority, and with an abundance of caution we are temporarily closing this area until we can properly assess the situation.”
It’s a “complicated” area to say the least, one we should all keep an eye on.
There’s been some activity close to the Yellowstone Caldera, also known as the Yellowstone Supervolcano. A volcano eruption is serious business. A Supervolcano erupting even more so for obvious reasons.

The fissure is located 60 miles (100km) from the Yellowstone volcano. Although chances of and eruption are low of course the consequences would be pretty terrible.
Keep it in mind if you live in the area, especially downwind.

Sure, everyone thinks the guy with the gas mask is a lunatic until they cant breathe because of the volcanic ash. Remember the rule of the, you cant live 3 minutes without air, rembmer?
Invest in some quality respirators for each family member and some disposable valved N95 folding respirators to keep in kits.

Check out these images from the Saddleworth Moor fire in UK just days ago.

Check some of our older posts on the topic of volcano eruptions. You may be surprised by how often we have covered such events actually taking place in recent times across the globe.
Stay safe!
