Kilauea volcano

On 20th December, Kilauea volcano located on Hawaii’s Big Island erupted, prompting the volcano’s alert status to be upgraded and a red alert to be hoisted. The eruption originated within Kiauea’s Halema’uma’u carter. Lava from the eruption boiled off the water in the summit’s water lake and formed a new lava lake. The last major eruption of Kilauea was in June 2018, when lava flowed for more than 4 months.
