    Eruption of Mt. Sinabung in Indonesia.

    There is a super volcano called Kaymshina to the south of Shiveluch.

    Shiveluch is a stratavolcano. Not a super volcano. Karymshina is a super volcano but a relatively small and young super volcano. Karymshina is nowhere near the power and size of say Toba or Yellowstone.

    Its actually when it erupts....which will happen in the near geologic future.

    The people in Australia have other volcanos to worry about....they don't need to worry about just Yellowstone.

    Could happen tomorrow. But since nobody in this lifetime or the past 100 lifetimes has seen an eruption of a super volcano it's hard to tell just what kind of eruption it will have. If it's anything like the first super eruption, were all doomed. But if it's anything like it's last eruption we may have a fighting chance.

    Australia will have to worry about Yellowstone. All of the world will have to worry about Yellowstone if a super eruption occurs. The cloud of super heated gas may not reach Australia, but they will have to deal with the volcanic winter that Yellowstone will cause worldwide in the event of a super eruption.

    I'm pretty sure it won't be tomorrow or even in 2018.....but in the next 50,000 years I'd say is quite likely.

    Yes Australia will have to contend with the affects of Yellowstone.....but the super volcanoes in Indonesia are something they would be more affected by.

    As far as I know Toba is extinct. Could be wrong though?
