The eruption of the Kilauea volcano in Hawaii is now in its 44th day. In recent days, the ever deepening lava lake overflowed the rim of the lowest of three down dropped blocks of the caldera floor. As a result, lava can now be directly witnessed (and not just an orange glow) from several overlooks. So, where is the lava flowing? 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.
