Volcanoes with recent earthquakes above magnitude 2 or more than 10 quakes are listed below:




Chaîne des Puys volcano (France ): magnitude 2.5 earthquake

A magnitude 2.5 earthquake occurred at the volcano 13 hours ago. The quake, which might be volcanic in origin, was located at a depth of 5.0 km depth at 11 km distance NW from the volcano.
Earthquake details:
M 2.5 quake: FRANCE on Wed, 2 May 10h31 (11 km NW)
All earthquakes at Chaîne des Puys
The Chaîne des Puys in the Massif Central of southern France is one of Europe's youngest volcanic fields. It consists of numerous cinder cones and maars roughly arranged on a N-S trending line. The last activity occurred only about 6000 years ago, which is why the volcanoes should be considered still active although there are no signs at present of any new activity to be expected in any near future.
