Unknown magma pool caused a rise of land in Oregon

Though, is whether such an increase for the warning signs of the eruption is not yet known. A plot of land of 230 square meters. miles (600 sq. km.) in Oregon began to rise in the summer of 1996. The area is located west of the South Sister volcano. Although this area has not seen an eruption, at least 1,200 years, and hints of volcanic activity is of concern, leading to continuous satellite monitoring. For the last 14 years, the data

At this time, the phenomenon of metal objects on the beaches of Oregon, Washington and Northern California has caused the liveliest
