The earth is going to experience much more volcanic acitivity than we modern humans could ever imagine...well thats what i think anyway. I wonder if something is happening in the core of the earth that is forcing magma to be more pressurised...?
But there is alot of earthquake activity that looks to be more volcanic in nature than tectonic....but only time will tell. Most likely there would be warning.....but we humans have been caught by surprise many time before!
As for surviving it...? Depends on how close you are to the action and how big the eruptions become. A supervolcano is a much more serious consequence for earth than an earthquake....the whole climate is affected for years and years...like an ice age. The soils and water would all be contaminated...the air....
There have been several earthquake swarms around volcanic hotspots...some in heavily populated regions.
I thought this article from 2003 was interesting...talking of new things that were going on then. But right towards the end of the article he says " Yes there is an unprecedented level of activity going on, but it currently is deep."....
Well now the swarms are shallow quakes...so things have evolved a lot in the last decade.
Interested observer of all things interesting!
