Rockfall triggers explosive event at Halema‘uma‘u...

Detailed Description

Just after 10 AM this morning, the southeastern wall of the Overlook crater, in Halema‘uma‘u, collapsed and fell into the summit lava lake. This triggered a small explosive event that threw spatter bombs onto the rim of Halema‘uma‘u at the site of the tourist overlook, closed since 2008. This image is a still taken from the webcam positioned on the rim of Halema‘uma‘u at that location, showing spatter in the air directly in front of the camera.
