Kīlauea Eruption Update, May 5, 2022 & Visual History of the 2018 Eruption

3:19 AM · May 6, 2022

Kīlauea's 2022 summit eruption continues, with typical activity that included a slight drop in lava level during the past weekend and large ooze-up flows returning in the past day. This remains a great time for public viewing, continuing a long period of no increased volcanic threat to people. We share time-lapse and video illustrating these views and recent changes, using webcams, monitoring data and reports courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, highlighting the graphics and discussing live viewer questions as we go. To mark its 4-year anniversary, we also present a brief “Visual History of the 2018 Eruption” in this week's bonus segment. We will include bonus 2018 content in the weeks and months to come, always keeping in mind those impacted by those events. This program is brought to you in part by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Island Strong Fund of the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation in partnership with the County of Hawaiʻi, and from donations from viewers like you.
