Detailed Description

On May 27, 2018, around noon, an ashy plume rises from the Overlook crater at KÄ«lauea Volcano's summit. The base of the plume is about 600 m (2,000 ft) wide. The summit continues to subside in response to the withdrawal of magma. Rockfalls from the steep crater walls into the crater have produced explosions that send ash plumes to 10,000 feet above sea level or more.
