Kilauea Volcano Resumes Eruption, Sparking Safety Concerns

Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, resumed erupting on September 10 after a two-month pause.

The eruption showcases glowing lava within Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park, safely away from inhabited areas.

The Hawaii Volcano Observatory reported the afternoon start of the eruption at Kilauea's summit.

Volcanic smog, or "vog," will be created downwind of Kilauea, posing health concerns for nearby residents.

The volcano's alert level is elevated to warning status, and the aviation color code is now red.

This renewed eruption follows a shorter eruption in Halema crater from January to March 2023.

In June 2023, another brief eruption occurred, attracting many visitors to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Kilauea had a significant eruption from September 2021 to December 2021, impacting the region.

In 2018, a Kilauea eruption resulted in the destruction of over 700 homes.

An autonomous laser rangefinder was installed to monitor the lava lake's elevation, aiding in research and safety efforts.
