Timelapse Footage Shows Ongoing Volcanic Activity at Kilauea

Volcanic activity continued at Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano on November 29 and 30, two months after eruptions began.

According to the US Geological Survey (USGS), the volcano is erupting out of a sole vent located in the “western wall of Halemaʻumaʻu crater.” This footage, taken by a USGS webcam over the course of November 29-30, shows lava inside the crater.

As of mid-November the USGS estimated that some 30 million cubic meters (7.8 billion gallons) of lava had been expelled by the volcano since it began erupting on September 29. Credit: USGS via Storyful
