Yellowstone earthquakes and the interesting back story

    The USGS reported a swarm of earthquakes at Yellowstone last Friday. We all know it is overdue for an eruption, but the $64,000 question is when. As I read this story on Zero Hedge, I learned something new. In 2014, the US government entered into billion dollar contracts with other countries to take in displaced people in the event of an eruption. So, you all in Australia, Brazil, and Argentina could see an influx of US citizens if Yellowstone blows.

    The U.S. plan for relocation was formulated after a recent scientific analysis of the park revealed that Yellowstone’s supervolcano has the potential to violently erupt within the next 10-years as noted by others including the famous astrophysicist Michio Kaku.

    I wanted to find more about this agreement, but kept seeing the same story over and over again. (That in itself was interesting.) Do any of you all know more about this agreement. I'm just curious about the particulars.
