Three Volcanoes In Northern California Are Considered The Most Dangerous In America

Wildfires and earthquakes are by far the most common natural disasters here in California, but they aren’t the only ones. They may not be talked about as much, but volcanoes also pose a substantial threat to the Golden State. The United States Geological Survey put together a list of 18 volcanoes across the country that they considered “very high threat volcanoes”, and three of them are located here in Northern California. Our state hasn’t seen a volcanic eruption in over a century but according to this survey, these volcanoes may be due any day now.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:
