El Salvador, Guatemala, and Nicaragua are in the "ring of fire."

Honduras is not in the "ring of fire," but has many tropical storms and hurricanes.

During the past hundred years, there have been over 15 volcanic eruptions, 67 hurricanes or tropical storms, and more than 16,000 earthquakes of a 4.2 magnitude or more.
