A mysterious bulge in the Earth's crust is growing in Oregon, meaning magma underneath the surface is on the move and could erupt into a volcano soon. The bulge is in the Three Sisters mountains, which are remnants of volcanoes in the Cascade mountains that were thought to be extinct.
Lucy Sherriff writes in The Register that there was a series of small earthquakes in the area last March. One type of earthquake is caused by the movement of magma underground. As scientists who study quakes now know, a series of small earthquakes is a sign that a big one may be on the way.
The bulge was first spotted by NASA satellites. The potential volcano is near the town of Redmond.
