 Hawaii volcano erupts attractions closed lava sputter streets evacuated


Witnesses described the scene as a very terrible fire curtain. Residents saw lava strew 150 feet in the air, and lava strewn across the suburban streets. Officials said that after a week of warning of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, county, state and federal officials had warned residents to evacuate in the past week. The geological survey raised the warning level of the volcano to a warning state on Thursday, implying that a dangerous outbreak is imminent or ongoing. On Thursday, a large fissure opened near the area called LeilaniEstates, causing lava to bubble and seep out of the ground. The Kira Vee Maher volcano, one of the most famous living volcanoes in the world, has erupted more than 60 times in the past 2 centuries, and the latest eruption occurred in 1983, and has continued to this day! The outbreak occurred after moderate seismic activity in recent days. The US geological survey found hundreds of earthquakes on the big island of Hawaii, reaching five on Thursday morning. Later Thursday, cracks formed and lava began to splash around. The Hawaii Volcano Observatory said in a statement that the crack is about 150 meters long. At present, Hawaii county civil defense is coordinating the necessary response, including evacuating some residents in the Leilani area. The Hawaii Volcano Observatory of the United States Geological Survey deployed geologists overnight to an outbreak, while other scientists were monitoring the various data streams that were telemetering through the Observatorys 24/7. There are no reports of casualties caused by volcanic eruptions, but on Friday at least 100 people live in resettlement sites, and more evacuees are considered to be with relatives and friends. A few days before the outbreak, new cracks appeared on paved roads in parts of Leilani. Residents noticed that cracks did not emit heat or steam, but it was obvious that cracks were caused by the pressure formed by magma below. AstaMiklius, a geophysicist at the Hawaii Volcano Observatory in the US Geological Survey, said scientists could not predict how long the eruption would last. A key factor, Miklius said, is whether the volcanic magma bank will begin to drain due to volcanic eruption, which has not yet occurred. There is a considerable portion of the magma in the magma pool. This may not be just an hour of eruption, but how long it will last will depend on the volcanic magma bank. So we are paying close attention to this. At present, the tour project of Kira Vee Maher volcano in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park has been closed.
