On August 16, 2016 Yellowstone erupted violently, it spewed lava and ash miles into the sky devastating the immediate area. The ash cloud spread across the US and Canada causing respiratory issues for millions, it was a 6 on the VEI Scale. After the ash settled, there was 5 - 13 inches of ash on the ground across the US., and trace amounts - 3 inches on the ground in Canada.
