You may not have noticed, but our planet is becoming increasingly unstable lately.  Did you know that 40 volcanoes are currently erupting around the world? I had no Idea, did you? And some are pretty large.  According to Volcano Discovery, the number erupting right now is more than at any time in the past 100 years

If 40 currently erupting volcanoes sounds like a very high number to you, that's because it is.  According to Michael Snyder who wrote a blog about the large number of volcanoes erupting right now, the total of currently erupting volcanoes in the world is higher than the 20th century average for the entire year at any time over the past century.

Is the entire world in a current state of seismic flux?  It would seem so. In addition to all the volcanoes erupting right now there has been a huge increase in earthquakes and earthquake swarms around the world, including many states that surround us even in our very own home state of Idaho.

As I laid out in a blog a few weeks ago, Many experts believe that an eruption of the super volcano located in Yellowstone Park is imminent. Does that mean, this year, next year or in 10 years, nobody can predict for sure other than to state, it's not if, but when.

The USGS has just released an alarming new report regarding the possibility of a damaging earthquake happening in Idaho and or Utah. Here are the details that were just posted on the USGS Facebook page.

So are the large increases that we are seeing in volcanoes and earthquakes a warning sign of big earthquakes and super volcanoes to come? It’s hard to say, because predicting them is not an exact science, but some experts are predicting a few big, maybe as many as 4 large (8.0 or above) earthquakes in the world in the very near future as the land masses continue to shake, jiggle, move and settle.  Some scientists are claiming that all the seismic activity has to do with the sun  becoming more dormant, saying that the sun's activity is less now than in hundreds maybe even thousands of years.

I'm not sharing this information to scare anybody, but it's more for your information. So read the report and yourself and then decide what you think. Being prepared for an earthquake especially since we live in one of the most active earthquake parts of the country is probably a good idea.
