Lava Activity Seen From Kilauea Volcano's Crater on Hawaii's Big Island

Lava glowed in the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island on Friday, October 1, after a new eruption began on September 29 for the first time since May, the United States Geological Survey (USGS) said.

This footage filmed by EpicLava shows gases erupting from fissures glowing with lava on Friday morning, the source said.

According to the USGS, activity was seen from vents along the floor and western wall of Halemaumau crater, where all lava activity is confined as of Friday morning.

Seismicity and volcanic gas emission rates remain elevated, making high levels of volcanic gas the primary hazard of concern, the USGS said. Credit: EpicLava via Storyful
