Kilauea Volcano Eruption Update; New Eruption Occurs, Expected Length of the Eruption – lanikai-beach

The Kilauea volcano Hawaii started a new eruption on June 7th of 2023, earlier this morning. This eruption initially produced a nearly 500 foot high lava fountain, but this height quickly subsided. In the last several hours, of thousands of cubic meters of lava have been emitted which have covered an estimated 1 square kilometer of the crater floor. So, are any towns currently at risk? How long will the eruption last? This video will answer these two questions, and discuss what is likely to happen next as this Hawaiian island volcano.
