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 as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
