Lava Eruptions Continue around Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii

WASHINGTON – Kilauea volcano in Hawaii continues to erupt after having been active for 11 days, triggering several tremors in the area, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) reported on Monday.

“Eruption of lava continues from multiple points along the northeast end of the active fissure system,” the agency said in a statement, referring to the total of 19 volcanic fissures in the area.

The agency explained that the recent volcanic activity was “dominated by lava fountaining, explosion of spatter more than 100 feet (33 m) into the air and an advancing lava flow.”

The HVO highlighted that the lava flow from fissure 17 is turning slightly south and is about 800 m south of Highway 132, from where people have been safely evacuated.

It also pointed out that fissure 18, which became active on Sunday, is found to have been weakly active on Monday, but volcanic gas emissions from the volcano still remain elevated around its summit.

In addition, the agency warned that this eruption is still evolving and additional lava outbreaks could occur as “ground deformation” and “seismicity” continue in lower Puna.

More than 1,700 people have been evacuated since the volcano erupted on May 3, with over 37 buildings, dozens of houses and vehicles destroyed so far.
