Kīlauea Volcano — Cracked Road at Summit

Cracked road

Detailed Description

This 'warped-curb' crack, the largest in the parking area for the former Halema‘uma‘u overlook (closed since 2008), is one of many that have sliced the parking area into slices. Ballistics (blocks of solid rock) strewn across the area are visible in the foreground. Loose, dislodged blocks along this crack have not moved in at least the past 30 hours. This photo was taken today (June 11); additional photos and information about this area were posted on June 7.
