POV characters: Amber, Alex, Livia, Corbo

Amber, a trained seismologist, looks forward to a high school dance, and a summer internship with her mother. Neither occur. She, along with her mother, and other specialists race to determine the cause of a series of unexpected large quakes on unknown, and unsuspected faults in New Mexico.
Alex, a trained volcanologist, dreams of a life away from Kilauea. His first chance to walk on a volcano that hasn't towered over his life under his father's professorship. Except. He didn't expect a volcano to stir to life under his feet in the often forgotten volcanic plains of New Mexico.
Fumeroles emerge as the young specialists race to set up monitoring equipment in places no one thought it would be needed. With the help of their guide, they struggle through the quakes that begin a split in both the continent and society.
A large quake dams the formerly flowing Rio Grande. Amber and Alex beg the military to inform the people so they can evacuate. The military refuses. They set up road blocks, and curfews to maintain order.
Amber and Alex go to the heart of the one place they don't want to be. The gated volcanic plain on a military base. What they discover cannot be held back from the communities.

Communication has been cut off. No electricity. No phone service. Fuel is reserved for military missions.
Most people evacuated to the north.
Amber and Alex continue to survey the damage, and make sure those who remained behind are safe.  
People died without air conditioning to cool their homes. Or medicines they depended on to control life threatening illnesses. Two children who live with their grandmother are rescued from starvation. Another infant born to a woman who dies in childbirth. A death that is no longer preventable.
Desperate men roam the streets of the towns where most have evacuated. Communities melt as the walls betweens human population groups rise again. Men, women, and cultures clash as if they had never learned to live together in peace.
Livia and Corbo have a mission of their own in Arizona. Corbo is in a race to find his birth father, whom he has never met. His fate unknown. Without electricity, or fuel, they have to try to find him.
The military's needs get in the way. Including a stop at a nuclear power plant to verify it is safely deactivated.
Livia releases zoo animals. They have a better chance of survival on the plains of Arizona, than locked in cages to die of starvation and dehydration.
Everyone thought Arizona would be forever safe from earthquakes, volcanoes, and shifting water tables.
Only, they aren't.
Yellowstone's impending rupture will lead to a year-long winter, and global cooling for a generation, or more. Without seeds, farming techniques, and other life skills long forgotten, those who remain won't survive the coming year.
Together, the survivors must build a future in a tangled environment of fear, hunger, cold, and desolation.
