A noteworthy 4.2M earthquake, and subsequent seismic swarm has struck Southern California at the active volcanic buttes of the Salton Sea Volcano.
These series of volcanic buttes around Salton Sea are prone for eruption, as talked about in this main stream news report covering the unrest which has shown recently around this particular volcano.
Dormant volcanoes such as Mount Hood volcano, Glacier Peak volcano, Two Sisters volcano, Mono Lake super-volcano, Mammoth Mountain volcano, Markagunt Volcanic Plateau, Bitner Butte volcano, and Salton Sea volcano all have shown movement over the past 2 weeks.
This new Salton Sea Volcanic earthquake swarm is on TOP of the new eruption occurring off the West Coast of Oregon (along the Axial seamount).
It is also worthy to note the giant steam plume event which took place today (May 20 2015) across the West coast.
