HAWAIIAN VOLCANO BECOMES ACTIVE ONCE MORE
Payne Institute Earth Observation Group student worker Elijah Mt. Castle looks at the Hawaiian volcano Kīlauea that has become active. Kīlauea has been erupting since December 30th 2020. All lava flows are currently in the uninhabited lava lake and pose no threat. Kīlauea last erupted in 2018, when it erupted for 3 months straight. It was believed that a volcano the size of Kīlauea would only stop erupting when it was out of magma. February 3, 2021.
