Another dormant volcano is showing movement along the West coast.
This newest event occurred at a series of ancient (dormant) volcanic buttes in Central / East California.
The earthquake epicenter was located on the flank of Louisiana Butte, clearly an old dormant volcano (located next to Volcano Butte) near the town of Junction Ranch, CA.
This movement near Louisiana Butte comes on the heels of several other dormant volcanoes showing movement.
Make note below of the previous movement just this past week!
