  • Kilauea's lower east rift zone eruption continues, as fissure 8 continues to effuse lava at a high rate, feeding a massive river that meanders toward the coast, Pahoa, Hawaii, May 31, 2018. The slow pace of the flow has geologists concerned, as it is increasing in height, and any breach in the dike could potentially send a flood of lava laterally.

  • Fountain heights May 31, 2018 continue to reach 230 to 260 ft above ground level in Kilauea, Hawaii. Kilauea volcano began a once-in-a-century-scale eruption on May 3. Magma has drained from Kilauea's summit lava lake and flowed around 25 miles east underground, bursting out of about two dozen giant cracks or fissures near the plant. Over the weekend, there were more than 250 earthquakes at Kilauea's summit, with four explosions on Saturday sending ash as high as 12,000-15,000 feet.

While Hawaii Island features two massive volcanoes, with the highest, Mauna Kea, reaching nearly 14,000 feet above sea level and sometimes capped with snow, Kilauea is far less prominent. But because it's been active since 1983, the volcano's fiery flow of lava into the sea has been a popular cruise destination for photographers and tourists.
