In the event of a catastrophic supervolcano eruption at Yellowstone National Park, a new report from South Africa claims millions of Americans could be temporarily housed in Australia, Argentina, and Brazil.
According to the Epoch Times, a translation of an article published in South Africa’s Praag website states that the United States offered the African National Congress $10 billion a year for 10 years if it agreed to construct temporary housing for millions of Americans. The shelters would be used by those whose livelihoods would be affected by a potential eruption – a natural disaster that would have regional and global implications.
According to Praag, the US has secured such a deal with Brazil, Argentina, and Australia, but South Africa itself rejected the offer, claiming the arrival of millions of Americans would drastically alter the country’s racial dynamics.
“South Africa will not be part of the plan, because there is a risk that millions of white Americans could be sent to South Africa in an emergency situation and that this would pose a risk to black national culture identity,” said Dr. Siph Matwetwe, a spokesman for the Department of Foreign Affairs, as quoted by the Epoch Times.
“We have our own challenges, even if there is enough housing and infrastructure available, it will destabilize the country and may even bring back apartheid.”
Speculation over a possible supervolcano eruption has increased ever since a 4.8 magnitude earthquake was reported in Yellowstone National Park this past March. As RT reported previously, no damages or injuries were reported in the wake of the tremor, but it was the strongest quake to strike the area since the 1980s.
According to the US Geological Survey, the earthquake wasn’t expected to trigger any volcanic activity.
Should the supervolcano erupt, it could spread volcanic ash over large portions of the United States and North America in general, as well as generating problems around the world.
“It would be a global event,” Jamie Farrell of the University of Utah told the Associated Press last year. “There would be a lot of destruction and a lot of impacts around the globe.”
Although the USGS has stated multiple times that earthquake activity at or near Yellowstone is currently par for the course, fears over an eruption spiked again when a YouTube video was posted showing bison seemingly stampeding away from the park. This caused some to speculate that the animals were responding to the possibility that the volcano could erupt soon.
As RT reported in April, scientists and park officials dismissed the video, saying the bison were actually running deeper into the park and not away from it. Officials said that bison regularly migrate throughout the park as the seasons and weather change, adding that they move in order to find food more easily at different elevations.
“It was a spring-like day and they were frisky,” park spokeswoman Amy Bartlett said about the bison. “Contrary to online reports, it’s a natural occurrence and not the end of the world.”
