The US Geological Survey (USGS), which monitors Yellowstone volcano for signs of activity, has published its monthly activity report for August. Between August 1 and September 1, 2020, a total of 82 earthquakes were recorded, including five eruptions of Yellowstone's Steamboat Geyser. The update comes amid unfounded fears and social media rumours the US supervolcano is overdue an eruption.
One Twitter user said: "Sometimes I remember Yellowstone may erupt at any moment, and then it takes longer to fall asleep."
Another person said: "You've only got one life so, enjoy the delicious food, embrace every awesome moment, and live your life on your terms.
"Besides, there's a caldera in Yellowstone National Park that's about 40,000 years overdue to erupt, so yeah, just live it up!"
A third Twitter user said: "Oh Lord, 2020 boiling up another surprise up...
"Don't forget Yellowstone IS a super-volcano that will one day erupt and impact the majority of the continental US scientists say..."

Throughout the month of August, University of Utah Seismograph Stations recorded 82 earthquakes in the Yellowstone National Park region, northwest US.
The strongest earthquake was a magnitude 2.6 event just seven miles west of Old Faithful geyser.
The earthquake struck on August 20 at about 11.12pm local time.
And just two days earlier, a swarm of tremors was felt about 12 miles north-northeast of the geyser.
However, the strongest of these tremors was a "micro" quake of magnitude 0.9.
