This year’s eruptions of Kilauea in Hawaii Volcanoes NP largest in at least 20 years, geologists say

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano was one of the biggest and most compelling stories of the summer as the volcano spewed lava flows paved over miles, devoured an entire bay and redesigned the coastline of Kauai.


Now, months since the last time the volcano produced a lava flow, scientists are calling Kilauea's lower East Rift Zone eruption and caldera collapse the largest in at least 200 years, according to a new study in the journal Science.
