Eastern Kamokuna ocean entry

Eastern Kamokuna ocean entry...

Detailed Description

With brisk trade winds today, spectacular views of Kīlauea Volcano's eastern Kamokuna lava delta were possible from outside the closed area on the east, or Kalapana, side of the ocean entry. Lava deltas can collapse without warning, as happened here this past week, causing explosions that can throw rocky debris and fragments of molten lava flying in all directions (inland and seaward). Visitors to this area are urged to remain outside the closed area—clearly identified with a rope line and warning signs—for their safety.
