Incredible footage has emerged showing the river of lava that continues to gush from Kīlauea on Hawaii’s Big Island.
The fast moving lava was spotted pouring out of Fissure 8 at around 5pm on Friday, as the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency warned that the fissure remains highly active.
‘Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that the eruption activity continues at Fissure 8 in the lower East Rift Zone,’ the agency said in a flash bulletin on Sunday morning.
‘Lava is entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay and producing a large laze plume. Heavy vog is blanketing the interior and southern parts of the island, impacting Hilo and wrapping around to Kona through the weekend.’
