Pyroclastic flow would engulf the greater part of three states
I guess that would include you
Well, for your sake, let's hope an earlier post is correct as to IT NOT HAPPENING FOR QUITE SOME TIME!
Evidence of past flows are all around where I live. There is a small cliff that rises about 20-30 feet high in the park on the south side of my town that was created by a small fault line. About 15 minutes drive South of here is called...ummm...something Black Rock something. Anyways, the black rock is volcanic rock. About 15 minutes drive north of here is what's called "Hell's Half mile" which is bascially a recent lava flow. All the rock is black and vary sharp. As you drive up interstate 15, you can see the exact line the lava took. There's a rest stop that has trails that go out into it. Pretty cool. Also, about an hour northwest of here is Creators of the Moon. I haven't had a chance to get up there, but it's supposed to have a bunch of long hikes out into lava rock. So yea, hopefully all the tremors are just that and not something happening anytime soon.
