One of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea, has begun erupting again in Hawaii. Photo and video
One of the world's most active volcanoes, Kilauea, has woken up in Hawaii. It began to erupt inside the Halemaumau crater on the summit caldera.
This is reported by the AP . It is noted that the Hawaiian Volcanic Observatory detected a glow on webcam images (to view photos and videos, scroll to the bottom of the page).
As you know, the summit of Kilauea is located in the Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park, far from residential areas.
The volcano became active on Thursday, January 5. This information was confirmed by the US Geological Survey.
For the native Hawaiians, such phenomena have a deep cultural and spiritual significance. In particular, during the eruption of another volcano, Mauna Loa, many Hawaiians took part in cultural traditions. They sang and danced in honor of Pele, the deity of volcanoes and fire.
In addition, people gave alms to the higher powers.
The 2018 Kilauea eruption was the most destructive in modern history, spewing lava into the lower part of the Pune area and destroying entire communities.
As OBOZREVATEL reported, the last eruption of Kilauea lasted 16 months. It began in September 2021. For about two weeks, starting on November 27, two volcanoes on the islands - Mauna Loa and Mauna Loa - spewed lava side by side. They went to sleep at about the same time.
