Kīlauea pauses after a weeklong eruption
The most recent eruption at Kīlauea’s summit paused Saturday after a week of volcanic activity, according to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
Kīlauea, one of the most active volcanoes in the world, began erupting on Sept. 10, displaying glowing lava at a safe distance from people and structures in a national park on Hawaiʻi Island.
The observatory said volcanic activity could resume in the near future with little or no warning. Park visitors are urged to stay on marked trails and avoid cliff edges.
