Volcano Lava Lake Nears Overflow

 

 

Hawai‘i’s fresh water supply

It may seem like we have an endless supply of water here in Hawai‘i. Windward areas of some islands receive 120 to more than 200 inches of rain a year on average—considerably more than the “rainy city” of Seattle, which receives less than 40 inches per year. Population growth, changing land-use demands, deforestation, and climate change, however, pose significant threats to our water supply and even to rainfall itself. Fortunately there are many simple steps individuals and communities can take to save and protect water for Hawai‘i’s future. Read more here

Kilauea lava lake reaches highest level in more than a year

Lava rose to within 16 to 20 feet of the crater floor at Halemaumau this morning, the highest levels in more than a year.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory posted photos and a video taken Wednesday night that showed the lava lake at Kilauea reaching a level of 26 feet below the crater floor. The lake is easily visible from the Jaggar Museum overlook. Meanwhile, lava continues entering the ocean from Puu Oo vent in the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
