Indonesia arrives at Pacific Ring of Fire
The white sky of smoke is seen in the blue sky due to the eruption in the volcano. Indonesia arrives at the ‘Pacific Ring of Fire’. There are about 130 volcanoes active in the country. These are the highest in any other country in the world. The Mount Sinabung volcano had been stagnant for several centuries and erupted again in 2010.
Most of the world’s active volcanoes occur in the region around Indonesia. Due to the same number of volcanoes, this area is called the Ring of Fire. The number of active volcanoes is also 50 percent of the volcanoes present in the world in this region. 75% of the Earthquake on Earth comes here due to the active volcano being so high.
Size of effect area like a horseshoe
The Pacific Ring of Fire is the center of many large ground-floor activities due to the abundance of volcanoes. Spanning approximately 25 thousand miles, the impact area is horseshoe-like, with South America ranging from the West Coast North America to the lower reaches of Japan and New Zealand, with the Philippines and Indonesia at its center in the Asian region. Are in the center and therefore this is the most affected area of the earthquake.
