Mauna Loa Creates 'Rare Dual Eruption' on Hawaii's Big Island

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park prepared for an “influx of visitors” wanting to see a “rare dual eruption” after Mauna Loa began erupting for the first time in 40 years on Sunday, November 27, joining the already erupting Kilauea.

The Hawaii Emergency Management Agency reported that there were no evacuations as the “lava has not left the immediate summit area.”

Video posted by Daniel Windberg on Monday night shows the glowing lava moving from the Mauna Loa volcano.

USGS Volcanoes said that the lava flows were not a threat to the island’s populated areas. Credit: Daniel Windberg via Storyful
