    New research results suggest that magma sitting 4-5 kilometers beneath the surface of Oregon's Mount Hood has been stored in near-solid conditions for thousands of years.

     

    The time it takes to liquefy and potentially erupt, however, is surprisingly short--perhaps as little as a couple of months.
