Restless Kilauea

image

Fiery lava continues to pour from the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island. These Copernicus Sentinel-2 images from May 23, June 7, and June 12, 2018, show the relentless flow of lava and clouds of ash. The eruption, which began in early May, has destroyed more than 600 homes, spread lava over more than 800 hectares of land and opened up at least 22 fissures in the ground, according to Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim. Although this eruption has produced slow-moving lava, which has allowed people to evacuate, it is reported to be the most destructive eruption in the U.S. since that of Mount St. Helen’s in 1980.
