California is one of the most active seismic zones of the world reason why in this territory have been determined 8 zones of volcanic influence which in future could be epicenter of volcanic eruptions.
California is a State of USA, it is located to the East of the U.S. bordering the State of Oregon to the North, Nevada already Arizona to the East, to the South borders with Mexico and West Ocean Pacific. Its geography location makes California one of the States with the greatest volume of active volcanic craters in the country.
The Cascade Range, which runs through the State of california from South to North is part of the ring of fire, which the scientists have dubbed as the most active volcanic area in the world. Along the Ridge are more than 500 volcanic vents of which at least 76 of them have erupted on occasion during the last 10000 years, and although many of them are now inactive most likely will be that in the future these vents come to be activated again.
In terms of active volcanoes in California are listed at least 20 volcanoes that today still show signs of activity, within the list of 20 volcanoes stands Mount Shasta which occupies the first place among the volcanoes monitored United States busiest permanently by the USGS.
