Lava Spews Out of Kilauea Overnight as Eruptions Continue

Kilauea Volcano continued to spew lava on a third day of eruptions, as video taken by the US Geological Survey showed lava “fountaining” in the early hours of December 22.

The new volcanic activity, which began on December 20, has drawn visitors to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The National Parks Service reported that at least one lookout was full on Tuesday.

This footage shows lava pouring out into crater at Kilauea, as well as “a wind vortex on the lava lake, strong enough to rip up pieces of the lake’s crust,” according to USGS Volcanoes. Credit: USGS Volcanoes via Storyful
