Incredible Aerial Video Show Magnitude of Kilauea Lava Flows
AERIAL Video of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano show the magnitude of the lava continuing to flow out of fissures in the lower East Rift Zone.
These dramatic video show the extent of the incredible lava flows which continue to ooze out of fissures on Hawaii’s Big Island.
The United States Geological Survey has said lava continues to flow out of fissure 8 into a channel which is “nearly full to brim” in Leilani Estates.
“Fissure 8 continues to fountain to heights of about 100 to 130 feet. Lava flows out of fissure 8 into a channel that is nearly full to the brim in the vicinity of the Leilani Estates subdivision,” the USGS said.
The ocean entry is most active is most active in the Vacationland area, with multiple small lava streams spilling into the water, producing many small laze plumes.”
The aerial images show the rivers of lava spouting out from fissure 8 moving down and entering the ocean.
Lava has boiled away Hawaii’s largest freshwater lake in a matter of hours and sent a white plume high into the sky.
The molten rock entered Green Lake on Saturday and creative a massive plume of steam, casing the body of water to fizzle away, the USGS reported.
