After the Markagunt Volcanic Plateau, now the Uinkaret volcanic field, another dormant volcano is showing seismic activity in the Western United States.
The last eruption at this volcano in Arizona occurred nearly 1,000 years ago!
A rare 2.7 magnitude earthquake struck in Northern Arizona at the long dormant Uinkaret volcanic field. This is the second earthquake striking dormant volcanoes within 4 days.
The rare earthquakes being recorded at these long dormant volcanic areas as well as those along the Oregon Coast in the past few days are most probably a sign of seismic unrest in the region.
Is the Big One right around the corner?
