In this National Geographic News article, read about the active volcano at Yellowstone National Park. When the volcano blew 6,400 centuries ago, it obliterated a mountain range, felled herds of prehistoric camels hundreds of miles away, and left a smoking hole in the ground the size of the Los Angeles Basin. Recent research indicates the volcano is still active.
