When Lava Meets Sea: Hawaii’s Kilauea Continues To Erupt

When will eruptions cease at Hawaii's Kilauea?

When Lava Meets Sea: Hawaii’s Kilauea Continues To Erupt

Just three weeks ago the Kilauea volcano began its most recent eruptive activity on Hawaii’s Big Island. Now, the situation has gotten much worse.

More than 40 structures have been destroyed and one resident was badly harmed when he was struck in the leg by a molten hunk of rock thrown from the volcano.

It’s been reported by The Associated Press that some fissures were merging and producing more rapidly, with more fluid lava. This has begun flowing into rivers toward the Pacific Ocean.

At least two of the lava flows have reached the shore, sending up huge plumes of steam and creating a dangerous lava haze.

Geologists are continuing to urge caution and patience during this event. They say Kilauea remains volatile, with no predictable end in sight for the current eruptions.
