The Campi Flegrei supervolcano is located within The Phlegraean Fields which is a large volcanic area situated to the west of Naples, Italy.

Scientists fear that the supervolcano that sits under Naples, Italy may be getting ready to erupt. Campi Flegrei supervolcano indicates the situation may be reaching a critical point.

This poses a threat to at least half a million people live in the immediate area.

According to a study published Tuesday in the scientific journal Nature Communications scientists have identified a threshold that could set off "an accelerating deformation that can ultimately culminate in rock failure and eruption."
