The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory confirmed on Wednesday that an eruption has commenced within Halema’uma’u crater in Kīlauea volcano’s summit, within Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park. Kīlauea’s volcano alert level has been elevated to warning and the aviation color code raised to RED as this new eruption and associated hazards are evaluated.
Rise of 134-acre lava lake is slowing. During the Oct 1 helicopter overflight, #HVO scientists observed fewer fountaining sites in the center of the lake as compared to previous day. Lake has risen 26 m (85 ft) since eruption began Sep 29.
The new eruption at the summit of Kilauea is spewing out more than 26,000 gallons of lava a second, scientists said, and has filled the floor of Halemaumau Crater.
What people are saying?
Occam’s Lawn Darts Kilauea is erupting but there is no lava ‘flowing’ anywhere. More accurately, lava continues to pool within Halema’uma’u crater, which is inside and more than 500 feet below the rim of the much larger Kilauea caldera. No homes are in danger.
Mark Pritchett Looks scary Hope nobody goes to hell for one’s action and how you treat others. Accountability.
the girlies May it flow to the homes of those that seem to claim all the land specifically the home of a certain humanoid.
