Hawaii, da Big Island
Volcano Updates typically contain detailed information on the active Hawaiian Volcanoes. Over the past few years, the decade-long eruption of Kilauea has begun to shift. The river of lava that flowed to the ocean for 20 years stopped, stalled for a bit, then re-established itself several miles closer to civilization. In 2011 the lava flow took out houses in Kalapana Gardens and a year later took the last remaining house in the old Royal Gardens subdivision. In late 2012 new records were set on lava lake levels within the Halema`uma`u Crater at the Jaggar Museum.
Has Kilauea changed? Is there an ocean entry? What's the lava lake level at Pu`u `O`o? Keep current with all the volcano happenings in Hawaii. Get Volcano Updates for iPhone® and iPod touch® on the App Store now.
