Few People Realize There’s An Active Volcano Right Here In Oregon
Almost every Oregonian is familiar with Mount Hood. This magnificent peak is a symbol of the Beaver State and a popular destination. However, many people do not know that Oregon’s signature peak is also considered to be one of the top ten most dangerous volcanoes in the nation. There have been two significant eruptions here in the last 1,500 years — the last of which occurred in the 1790s.
While this volcano has been dormant for more than 200 years now, scientists believe that it is only a matter of time before another major eruption strikes the Pacific Northwest.
