(mbc.net) A minor earthquake hits Los Angeles one evening that barely elicits a response from the city's residents.  Some scientists are concerned however, who theorize that the tremors signal that something more dangerous will follow.  Specifically, rumors of two maintenance workers burnt alive in a drainage ditch and a lake's unusually high temperature indicate that a volcano could be brewing underneath LA.

Still there's no concrete evidence that anything is afoul -- at least not until globs of lava are propelled into the sky and onto the streets.  Can science prevent Mother Nature from annihilating the City of Angels?

Volcano earned $122 million at the box office.
