A day ago in Hawaii on February 2, 2017, Kilauea Volcano poured a huge stream of lava out the Pacific Ocean where it continues to explode upon contact with the ocean. Drizzles of lava started out on New Year Eve when 10.5-hectare lava delta collapsed into the sea.
“The seaward side of that crack could fall away,” said Ms. Babb, who works at the Hawaii Volcano Observatory.
“That is a serious concern because if it does, it’s going to drop a lot of hot rock into the water and hot rock mixing with cool seawater makes for explosive interactions.”
People without any concern of the risk they are getting their lives into, continue to visit this huge and magnificent arch of molten lava.
