2/07/2015 — DORMANT Volcano in California shows movement — Louisiana Butte / Volcano Butte earthquake

Another dormant volcano is showing movement along the West coast.

This newest event occurred at a series of ancient (dormant) volcanic buttes in Central / East California.

The earthquake epicenter was located on the flank of Louisiana Butte, clearly an old dormant volcano (located next to Volcano Butte) near the town of Junction Ranch, CA.
