Ring Of Fire On Alert After Philippines Earthquake: California Is Warned
“What we would expect here, would be more like Mt. Saint Helens. More of an explosive eruption,” said Tim McCrink with the California Geological Survey.
“So that puts a lot of rock and dust and gasses in the air.”
“California is not only earthquake country, it’s volcano country too,” Dr. Mangan said. Dr. Brian Hausback, a US geologist, told CBS:
“If one of these volcanoes decides to erupt, it will catch the world’s attention. These areas have high populations, infrastructure like power plants, and high level of air traffic in the area,” he said.
“There is no stopping a volcanic eruption. It is very likely that one of them will erupt in the near future, it is due.”
