Although that statistic alone is quite staggering, no single volcano is as positively unique as this massive underwater volcano located in the Aleutian Islands. While it’s sat quiet for over 25 years, the last six weeks have proven that this stratovolcano has a lot to say and doesn’t plan on staying quiet anytime soon.
