40 Acres of Hawaii Falls into Ocean

Lava pouring from exposed cliff face in Hawaii.Last week, roughly 40 acres of coastline at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park broke apart and fell into the ocean. The U.S.G.S. has some beautiful pictures of lava pouring out of the newly exposed cliff face from lava tubes.

The collapse of solidified lava shelf and sea cliff Monday was the largest since Kilauea Volcano began its current eruption in 1983.

Jim Kauahikaua, scientist-in-charge of the U.S. Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said a collapse warning was issued in June because the shelf had become large and had formed cracks. Large collapses had happened in the area before.

Here is a live view of the Pu`u `O`o crater in Hawaii via a webcam (note that it’s currently evening there as I posted this).
