The Paracutin Volcano's location


In some articles it is claimed that the volcano is dead. Does this look like it? I am standing in front of a huge hot spot.

The volcano covered 8 square kilometers of agricultural land and the town of San Juan.
The effects of the volcano’s eruption profoundly affected the surrounding villages and cultures..
There are more than 1000 vents in the Michoacan and Guantjuato region..
