Did journalists Peter Doocy or John Berman report that 100 earthquakes "just hit" Yellowstone National Park and that such earthquakes may lead to an "eruption"? No, that's not true: There is no evidence that either journalist reported such news. Additionally, a video mentioning such a report does not show any clips of either journalist saying that. The video also mixes in footage from the floods that closed park roads in 2022.
Peter Doocy Hundred Earthquakes Just Hit Yellowstone & Eruption May Happen!

Although the video title names Doocy as the person who reported this news, Doocy (archived here), a White House correspondent for Fox News at the time of writing, is only mentioned by name by the unidentified narrator and is not shown contributing to the information in the video. Lead Stories searched the Fox News website (archived here) by combining the phrases "Peter Doocy" and "Yellowstone," and none of the results were related to the claim. We also searched Doocy's official account on X (archived here) for any mention of "Yellowstone" and did not find any results.
Instead, the journalist shown at the outset of the video is Berman (archived here), who is a CNN anchor at the time of writing. Lead Stories found a transcript of an episode of "CNN News Central" that aired on June 14, 2022, (archived here) during which Berman said the exact words shown in the clip included in the Facebook video; however, Berman's actual report does not conclude that 100 earthquakes just happened at Yellowstone when the report was aired nor that an eruption at Yellowstone was imminent. Berman was only introducing a segment during which he spoke with CNN climate correspondent Bill Weir about historic flooding at Yellowstone. In the segment, Berman says that the Yellowstone River had reached its highest levels in 100 years.
