Description

Below is a brief explanation of the historic events the summer of 2018 on Kilauea Volcano. A comparison picture showing before and after the collapse in Halemaumau crater and a more complete description of the events is one of the pages in this calendar.

The geologic activity of Kīlauea volcano in 2018 was unprecedented in the 100+ years it has been studied by scientists. On April 30, 2018, the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent began collapsing and instruments showed magma moving down the East Rift Zone. A magnitude 6.9 earthquake occurred on May 4, located under the Kīlauea South Flank and near the East Rift Zone. May 11, 2018 Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park closed due to the dangers created by the ongoing and increasing geologic events. By August 4 lava activity in the Lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) was waning and by September 4 all the lava activity ended. On September 22 the national park was able to begin reopening. As of this writing, late February 2019, many people are still being affected in the areas where their land and homes were covered and portions of the national park remain closed due to damage to infrastructure and resources.

The information above was taken from the USGS publication Preliminary summary of Kīlauea Volcano’s 2018 lower East Rift Zone eruption and summit collapse.

A total of 13 spectacular photos of the ever changing Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii.
