This is a photo I took at Yellowstone last year. It is just now re-opened; I saw a video yesterday with the scientist in charge of the volcano observatory talking about activity in the park recently. Steamboat Geyser erupted on May 31 and was still emitting steam which it does for days after an eruption. Cistern Spring, which is located nearby, had started emptying out because there is some type of underground connection between the features.
I don’t think it is an exaggeration to compare recent events in our country to volcanic activity. And note that we are all connected in complex, often hidden ways.
