Kilauea remains a constant hazard on Hawaii’s Big Island as the volcano continues to spew lava through a single fissure. These latest pictures from the US Geological Survey show the ongoing drama caused by the eruption.
Today marks the 12th week Kilauea has been erupting and magma started erupting from the ground in Kilauea Volcano’s Lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) on Hawaii’s Big Island.
The volcano began its activity on May 3 and sent channels of flowing lava over entire communities, lakes and even filling in an entire bay.
New pictures have emerged of the lava entering the ocean as several small lobes of lava were pictured oozing out from crusted flows along the southern ocean entry.
