See how the ground has deformed around the Yellowstone supervolcano, as experts reveal it's now been hit by over 1,500 earthquakes this summer (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

As small earthquakes continue to rumble around the Yellowstone supervolcano in Wyoming, scientists have revealed new evidence of the changes going on beneath the ground.

A new map from the US Geological Survey shows how the ground around the Yellowstone caldera has deformed over the span of two years, as the quakes release uplift-causing pressure, allowing the ground to sink back down.

This activity is typically linked to changes in magma and gases deep below the surface – but for now, the experts say there’s no cause for worry.
