Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano Is Erupting

Images from the Kilauea summit webcam showed that an eruption had started in the Halema’uma’u crater of the summit caldera of the volcano in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

The Halema’uma’u crater’s base has produced lava fissures. This begins to flow and is visible on the crater floor thanks to webcam imagery. As the activity is limited to Halema’uma’u and the eruption continues, the risks will be re-evaluated.

All of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park is where the present eruption is taking place. The observatory claims to be in “constant communication” with the park’s administrators. On the internet, a time-lapse video depicting the beginning of the eruption as lava fills a volcano crater has gone viral.
