Scientists believe that they may have discovered a supervolcano in the Pacific.

They have found that a group of 6 volcanoes might actually be separate vents of a single supervolcano.

The six volcanoes – Carlisle, Mt Cleveland, Herbert, Kagamil, Tana and Uliaga – are located in the Aleutian Islands chain off the coast of Alaska.

The scientists have been studying Mt Cleveland, now suspect the six volcanoes are part of one interconnected caldera.

Each is currently considered a stratovolcano. These are the stereotypical cone-shaped mountain with a crater at the top, like Mt Taranaki.

A volcano of this size would be capable of immense destruction.
