Los Angeles really overheats in the erupting VOLCANO!

Angelenos are prepared for earthquakes but what happens when an earthquakes releases a hidden volcano?! That’s what happens in Volcano: a massive quake erupts in downtown Los Angeles and rocks the city so hard that Emergency Management department head Mike Roark (Tommy Lee Jones) returns from his vacation to help with the city’s response. Just as geologist Dr. Amy Barnes warns of a lurking volcano, another earthquake hits and unleashes the molten lava! Roark and Barnes work to figure out how to divert the lava while the inhabitants of the city learn they have much more in common than in differences.
