    The supervolcano that lies beneath Yellowstone National Park in the US is far larger than was previously thought, scientists report.

    A study shows that the magma chamber is about 2.5 times bigger than earlier estimates suggested.

    A team found the cavern stretches for more than 90km (55 miles) and contains 200-600 cubic km of molten rock.

    The findings are being presented at the American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting in San Francisco.

    Prof Bob Smith, from the University of Utah, said: “We’ve been working there for a long time, and we’ve always thought it would be bigger... but this finding is astounding."

    If the Yellowstone supervolcano were to blow today, the consequences would be catastrophic.
