Quoted from the video “FOBOS Planet (June 17, 2018): New great lava flow in Hawaii 2018. Stunning video of a giant lava river, powered by the Fissure #8, a fast flow of Lava drains in direction of Kapoho Bay, Hawaii. The fountain at fissure 8 has been reaching heights of 175-200 feet, and the cone surrounding the fissure is now 170 feet high! Fissures 16, 18, and now 15, which is by Pohoiki road have all seem some oozing and minor lava spattering.
Isn’t this river of lava flowing unbelievable! I wish I could hop on a plane to Kona to take in this incredible fate of Mother Nature. It’s been @ 10 years since I stayed on the Kona side of the Big Island and visited the Kilauea volcano park. We were able to walk as close as allowed to see the hot flow of lava, a mind boggling view! Has anyone else seen the volcano? Are you taking a trip soon to see it active?
