Officials note that while there is no danger to nearby residents on the Hawaiian Big Island, the situation will be exacerbated by the increase.
The US Geological Survey’s Hawaiian Volcano Observatory had raised its alarm clock earlier in the day after recording an increase in the reading count.
“The increase in seismic activity and changes in groundwater patterns at the Kilauea summit began to take place at about noon on September 29, 2021, marking the movement of magma in the Earth’s crust,” said USGS.
The organization says it saw along with a website to observe the light during the Kuuea summit around 3:20 pm local time, indicating that the explosion had begun.
David Phillips, a science-in-manager, tells CNN that evidence of change at the site was seen last night.
“Just after midnight, we started adding more earthquakes and more earthquakes,” he said.
Explosions are within the boundaries of the park. There are no current threats to life or buildings, Phillips said, but the explosion could last for months.
