Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano spectacularly erupts after three-month slumber


Kilauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, began erupting after a three-month pause, sending out spectacular fountains of mesmerising, glowing lava that’s a safe distance from people and structures in a national park on Hawaii’s Big Island.

All activity was within a closed area of Hawaii Volcanoes national park. ‘The lava this morning is all confined within … the summit caldera.

So plenty of room for it still to produce more without threatening any homes or infrastructure,’ said park spokesperson Jessica Ferracane. ‘So that’s the way we like our eruptions here.’
