Volcanoes in Russia!!!

         I don’t know about anyone else, but when I think volcanoes I think of Hawaii not Russia. However, Russia actually has quite a few volcanoes. Volcanic activity is not a rarity either. They have 12 active volcanoes. Russia’s Far East region is full of volcanoes, and these happen to be some of the largest in Eurasia. Most volcanoes of Russia are part of the Ring of Fire in Kamchatka and the Kurile Islands. Over the last 15 years they have had 16 eruptions. These have not been deadly or catastrophic events, but I found it interesting that there was all this volcanic activity going on under the radar across the globe.

Below is a picture of an eruption in 2013!!!
