The Quiz: Where can you find what volcanologists consider the most active volcano in the world?

A Canary Islands
B Sicily
C Hawaii

Kīlauea on the Big Island of Hawaii is widely considered the most active volcano on Earth—it’s been in an almost constant eruptive state for the last 40 years. Its last major eruption was in 2018. For about four months, large lava flows destroyed roads and homes and altered the coastline. Ash plumes blanketed the sky. The ground buckled as the region experienced thousands of earthquakes. Kīlauea and its neighboring volcano Mauna Loa are part of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, which was established in 1916.

The correct answer to this quiz is Hawaii.
