The United States Geological Survey (USGS) has warned that California’s next big catastrophe might not be a massive earthquake. Instead, they say a massive volcanic eruption could plunge the state into a post-apocalyptic hellscape.

In a report released on Monday, the USGS said that at least 10 volcanic eruptions have taken place in the past 1,000 years and that “future volcanic eruptions are inevitable.” The USGS has previously said that California in dire need of the monitoring of at least 8 active volcanoes.

USGS Says California Needs Close Monitoring Of 8 Active Volcanoes

USGS claims that most people are well aware of the fact that California could experience a major and deadly earthquake, but the general public is less than concerned about a volcanic eruption. “The potential for damaging earthquakes, landslides, floods, tsunamis, and wildfires is widely recognized in California,” the report said according to Newsweek. “The same cannot be said for volcanic eruptions, despite the fact that they occur in the state about as frequently as the largest earthquakes on the San Andreas Fault.”

The USGS estimated the risk of volcanic eruption based on the past 5,000 years of volcanic activity in California. The report further found that there is a 16 percent chance of a small to moderate-sized eruption over the next 30 years. As reported by Newsweek, by comparison, there is a 22 percent chance of a magnitude 6.7 or larger earthquake at the San Andreas Fault in the San Francisco Bay Area in the next 25 years.

Although one cannot stop a volcano from erupting, preparations can be made just in case this inevitable event happens on our watch. The potentially hazardous volcanoes in California are being monitored closely for any changes that indicate an eruption could be on the way, but that may not give those in surrounding communities much time to get awat from the hazard. Americans by and large have long lost their willingness to prepare for cataclysmic events and natural disasters.

    OK. 22% chance in how many years??? Californicate, Oregon, and Washington state are all on the ring of fire AND AS SUCH ARE VULNERABLE to disaster(s). Constant worrying about tomorrow cannot, and will not suffice. What will work for those folks that are in the zone is simple. Lots of water. (mandatory water.) Foodstuff that will last, like beans, rice, honey, and dry cereals canned and cured meats, and water…did I say lots of water. You can live without food for possibly 20-30 days; you can live without water for maybe 72 hours. Stock up people. Last but most surely not least is talk with your maker. I don’t want to tell you whom to choose for your savior, but, yuh need to have that foremost on your mind.
