FDA approves Teva’s generic version of Mylan’s EpiPen



1: Kilauea volcano, Hawaii. Threat Score: 263. Aviation Threat: 48.

The federal government's has been more updated for the first time since 2005.

Each one gets two scores: an overall threat score and an aviation threat score.

The overall threat score looks at 24 factors including how often it erupts, how powerful its eruptions are, the nearby population size, and how many people have been killed or evacuated before.

The aviation threat score is similar but focuses on factors like how close a volcano is to airports, and which flight paths go nearby.

Here are the 20 volcanoes that post the biggest risk:

"Since volcanic unrest can escalate to an eruption quickly — in a few weeks, days, or less —USGS scientists are monitoring the activity closely," the USGS said.

16: Mauna Loa, Hawaii. Threat Score: 131. Aviation Threat: 4.

Mauna Loa is the largest active volcano on our planet and is among Earth's most active volcanoes. It covers half of the Island of Hawaii.

It last erupted in 1984, when a lava came within 4.5 miles of Hilo, the island's largest population center.

15: Glacier Peak, Washington. Threat Score: 135. Aviation Threat: 37.

"Since the end of the most recent ice age, this volcano has produced some of the largest and most explosive eruptions in the conterminous United States," the USGS said.

14: Mount Baker, Washington. Threat Score: 139. Aviation Threat: 15.

The USGS says that monitoring at Mount Baker is now 'insufficient" in light of the "threat that renewed activity would pose to nearby communities and regional infrastructure."

13: Newberry Volcano, Oregon. Threat Score: 146. Aviation Threat: 30.

Newberry Volcano covers the size of Rhode Island. It last erupted about 1,300 years ago but is still an active volcano.

12: Augustine Volcano, Alaska. Threat Score: 151. Aviation Threat: 48.

The volcano lies 77 miles west of Anchorage, Alaska's largest city and an international air travel hub.

9: Makushin Volcano, Alaska. Threat Score: 161. Aviation Threat: 47.

Three Sisters hasn't erupted in 2,000 years, but it is close to towns and winter resorts.

6: Mount Hood, Oregon. Threat Score: 178. Aviation Threat: 30.

Mount Hood is close to "rapidly growing communities, recreation areas, and major transportation routes and therefore imposes heightened risk," according to the USGS.

5: Mount Shasta, California. Threat Score: 178. Aviation Threat: 39.

Nearby towns, like Mount Shasta and Weed, are close enough to the volcano that they could be at risk in an eruption.

4: Redoubt volcano, Alaska. Threat Score: 201. Aviation Threat: 48.
