The next eruption is feared to have catastophic worldwide effects.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) has said Yellowstone is not overdue for a large eruption.

It said volcanoes do not work in predictable ways and even if they did, there would still be another 100,000 years until a blast is due.

While another big eruption is possible, it may never happen, according to the USGS.
