That's a big reservoir!  11,000 cubic miles! 

Y'all gotta read the comments at the link, they're a hoot!   ::thumbsup::

More eruption concerns...

Hey, it's cooked off every 700-800k years or so...so...tomorrow or in 10 years or a 100 or a 1000 or 10,000 really doesn't mean anything geologically...

It cooks off in full fury...yeah even most of my state could be impacted...

Like a giant nuke...inside a certain radius is probably foolish to worry about bug-out plans...everybody else should have some sort of plan...

Beyond that, go about business as usual...

The data also reveal that the shallower magma zone is about 9 percent melted rock, and the newly found lower zone is 2 percent melted. Neither is a giant chamber of magma and neither is in any danger of erupting -- contrary to popular misconceptions -- say the researchers.

I wish they'd make up their minds.

Perish the thought...it would pin them down...

And then the funding for continued theorizing would dry up...
