HAWAII’s terrifying Kilauea volcano is but one in a monstrous chain of 169 volcanoes and officials have revealed 50 of them could potentially stand on the brink of eruption.

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) lists a total of 169 volatile volcanoes across the Western US, Hawaii and Alaska.

The US volcanoes have been active to varying degrees over the years but the ongoing eruption in Hawaii has reminded people of the unexpected dangers of mother nature.

At least 50 of the fiery mountain have been deemed by the USGS to be high priority for monitoring.

The biggest current risks are posed by the five active volcanoes spread across Hawaii’s eight-island archipelago.

The USGS said: “The Hawaiian Islands are at the southeast end of a chain of volcanoes that began to form more than 70 million years ago.

“Each island is made of one or more volcanoes, which first erupted on the floor of the Pacific Ocean and emerged above sea level only after countless eruptions.”

Mauna Loa, the world’s largest active Hawaii volcano and neighbour to Kilauea on Big Island, has erupted 33 times in the last 175 years.

A yellow volcanic advisory for Mauna Loa has been in effect since April after a bout of tremors rocked deep underground beneath the volcano.

Another Hawaiian threat comes from the subaquatic Loihi Seamount volcano, about 35km southeast of Big Island.

The ancient volcano last erupted in 1996 with a swarm of 4,070 earthquakes – the highest number of Hawaii earthquakes in history.

In Alaska, Mount Cleveland has been in a state of volcanic unrest since 2015.
