Hawaii’s Kilauea, One of the World’s Most Active Volcanoes, Erupts Again

Kilauea is one of the most famous and active volcanoes in the world, located on the Big Island of Hawaii. Kilauea is located in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and had a small eruption recently. Kilauea is the most active volcano within the park and has been erupting continuously since 1983, making it the longest-erupting volcano on record.

Smithsonian Magazine ~ Kilauea, a shield volcano located on Hawaii’s Big Island and one of Earth’s most active, erupted again early on Monday morning, albeit timidly.

Beginning just after midnight and ending some 12 hours later, the eruption occurred inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, about 2.5 miles southwest of the Kilauea caldera. While Kilauea has recently erupted—three times last year alone—this particular area had been quiet for nearly five decades, since it last spewed lava for six hours in December 1974.

Because of the region’s potential for rockfalls and other hazards, public access near the caldera has been limited since 2008. As for Monday’s eruption, 'there are really no threats to any communities,' Katie Mulliken, a geologist with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, tells USA Today’s Christopher Cann." ~ Smithsonian Magazine
