A new fissure has opened at Leilani Estates as #Kilauea continues to erupt

Though the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii has been erupting continuously since 1983 , the eruption took a dangerous turn on May 3, 2018, when several new fissures emerged in a residential neighborhood. At 10:41 a.m. local time (20:41 Universal Time) on May 14, 2018, the Operational Land Imager (OLI) on Landsat 8 acquired natural-color images of the volcano. Information from the shortwave infrared (band 7 ) has been layered onto the top image to show where the satellite detected unusually warm temperatures (red) associated with lava in active fissures near Leilani Estates. Recent lava flows appear gray; forested areas are dark green. Homes appear as small white dots. The U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) reported that fissure 17 in the Lower East Rift Zone produced lava fountains and spatter explosions that rose more than 30 meters (100 feet) into the a...
