Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano remains under Watch

See also

The Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii remains on the “Watch Orange” alert by the US Geological Survey (USGS). In the past day, 26 earthquakes were strong enough to be located under the Kilauea Volcano. Three other volcanoes in the United States are currently listed as “Advisory Yellow” while the remaining six are listed as “Normal Green.”

This month is Hawaii Island's 5th annual "Volcano Awareness Month". Friday, 3 January, will mark the anniversary of Kilauea’s ongoing East Rift Zone eruption. The eruption began in 1983. Over the past 31 years, the flowing lava has burned 48 square miles of land and destroyed over 200 buildings.

Part of prepping is gathering knowledge and being aware. The USGS and the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory have several free presentations planned for those wishing to learn more about volcanoes. Kilauea’s East Rift Zone will be the topic of discussion on Tuesday, 7 January. Tim Orr, a geologist with the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, will be the presenter.
