Chapter One: The Last Event

Most of the people in the world had no knowledge of the threat posed by the Yellowstone volcano, even though the information was available, it was on the internet, and there had been many documentaries filmed concerning it.

The earliest documentaries, were disturbing. After airing for a decade and raising the level of alarm, newer productions began to slip miss-information into the narrative. This eased public apprehension about the dilemma, but did nothing in the way of preparing people for it.

The United States Geological Service (U.S.G.S.), closely monitored the volcano. They were aided by several nearby universities. They began to monitor it as soon as they realized what they had discovered.

Seismographs were deployed, and in time the vast magma dome at the epicenter was mapped out through global positioning systems, satellite tracking that measured uplift and deformation of the surface of the cauldera at its weakest point.

In the early days this information was available to the public, but after a year of intense activity the crucial and most informative data became restricted.

Then, the eruption came without warning.

It shook the world, throwing it off its axis.

Ash poured into the upper atmosphere, covering everything in a poisonous cloud, hiding the survivors from the face of the sun.
