Wanganui bubbles beneath

CD Wanganui bubbles beneath

"Scientists are predicting Wanganui will eventually become a volcano.

Dr Hamish Campbell of the Institute of Geological and Nuclear Sciences says there is already a huge amount of seismic activity beneath the city. He says a line can be drawn straight from the volcanoes of the Kermadec arc, through White Island, Ruapehu and Wanganui.

However there is no need to flee Wanganui in terror just yet. Mr Campbell says the volcano is not expected to emerge for thousands of years."
