Hawaii's Kilauea volcano begins erupting again

The Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island began erupting again on Thursday, 5 January, almost a month after officials declared that its activity had stopped.

Webcam images captured by the US Geological Survey (USGS) indicated that activity had resumed within the HalemaÊ»umaÊ»u crater in KÄ«lauea’s summit caldera.

The USGS escalated a volcano alert from “watch” to “warning.”

Kilauea is one of the most active volcaneos in the world, erupting for 16 months from September 2021.
