Yellowstone volcano latest: Shock video shows terrifying crack at nearby Grand Teton
A GIGANTIC crack appearing on a volcano near Yellowstone National Park has been caught in a terrifying video.
The huge 100ft fissure hissing steam on in Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming located six miles from Yellowstone and about 60 miles from the Supervolcano.
Park officials have closed off two areas of the park called Inspection Point and Hidden Falls citing fears for people’s safety.
Should the monster erupt, blistering lava could swallow Wyoming, Montana and Idaho due to it being located on the border of the US three states.
This would devastate the homes of millions of people and put their lives at risk.
And the video has forced experts to play down fears, saying it was not related to the Yellowstone super-volcano.
The US National Park Service insisted it was a “common occurrence … and is a part of the naturally dynamic environment of mountains”.
The NPS added in the statement: “Over long periods of time, water flowing through minute fractures decomposes rock in a process called weathering.
“Once a rock has been weathered, triggers such as freeze-thaw cycles, flowing water, temperature variations, vegetation growth, and other factors can cause cracks in rock to grow rapidly and possibly break free and fall.”
But the service was forced to close areas because of fears the rock could break off.
