Hardly a day goes by when Southern Californians don’t wonder if we’re ready for the anticipated “Big One”.
Many people don’t realize it, but there are volcanoes in California – and there could be all sorts of problems if they erupt.
Mount Everest gets all the credit, but Hawaii’s Mauna Kea (an idle volcano that’s been around for, you know, a million years) is technically the world’s tallest mountain. Technically. While it stands 13,800ft above sea level, more than two thirds of the hill is actually submerged underwater, which brings the total height to 33,136ft.
