The Hong Kong Civil Engineering and Development Department made an official announcement of the discovery of an ancient super volcano on Aug 30, 2012. This is the first time to find such volcano in south east of Hong Kong. The last time it erupted happened around 140 million years ago. Since then, it has turned into an extinct volcano.
