Is Hawaii's Kilauea volcano going to explode? What Mount St. Helens and other eruptions have taught us
For days, Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has devastated the Big Island, oozing chunks of 2,000-degree lava and opening more than a dozen cracks (fissures) in the ground that spit out toxic gas and steam.

You can't stop lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano with water, bombs or walls. Here's why.
Lava isn't like water, snow or mud. It's liquid rock, so it's heavy, sticky and moving underground. It's also nearly 2,000 degrees.

Images of Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano show the destructive power of nature in action
Since May 3rd, Hawaii’s most active volcano, called Kilauea , has been spewing out lava and molten rock on a residential area called Leilani Estates, prompting evacuations and destroying up to 26 homes . The eruption has also been providing us with some stunning and terrifying photos and videos of bright orange lava bubbling up from cracks in the ground and shooting up to 330 feet (100 meters) into the air .
The Kilauea volcano has been erupting almost without stopping since 1983, according to the US Geological Survey . That’s because it sits on a hot spot in the middle of the Pacific plate with high amounts of magma coming up to the surface, says Janine Krippner , a volcanologist at Concord University. “What we’re seeing right now is pretty...

In revised figures released on Sunday, officials said another four unspecified structures were covered by lava. The ruined homes were in Leilani Estates, in the island’s eastern Puna district, where molten rock, toxic gas and steam have been bursting through openings in the ground.

U.S. Geological Survey via AP
Hawaii's Kilauea volcano erupted Thursday morning , sending an ash plume thousands of feet into the sky.
The eruption occurred shortly after 4 a.m. local time, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said . Authorities evacuated people from around Kilauea's crater area and urged those in the vicinity of the volcano to take shelter.
The volcanic eruptions on Hawaii's Big Island have been escalating for about two weeks, severely damaging nearby residential neighborhoods. More than 1,000 people have been evacuated so far.
Beyond the immediate fire danger from the lava, high levels of sulfur dioxide spewing from the volcano pose a serious threat to children, elderly people, and people with respiratory issues, the United States Geological Survey said.
Dramatic photos show lava pouring into residential neighborhoods around a series of volcanic fissures that have opened. Here's what it looks like on the ground.

Read on Ars Technica | Share | Tweet

Enlarge / Lava pouring from a fissure in the Leilani Estates neighborhood. (credit: USGS )
Recent events in Hawaii have been producing some remarkable images . But if you’re not a geologist—or resident of Hawaii—you might be wondering what the heck is going on. We’re here to help: while lava spewing from back yards in a subdivision seems wild, it’s not really surprising.
Why is Kīlauea an active volcano in the first place?
The Hawaiian chain of islands (there are also seamounts that no longer reach above sea level) is the result of a “hotspot” in the Earth’s mantle. Hotspots in the Earth's interior are areas of rising hot rock that can turn to liquid hot magma near the Earth’s surface. These hotspots are basically stationary, while tectonic plates slowly slide around on the surface. That means a hotspot will punch a line of eruptions through the plate a bit like a sewing machine.
The Big Island of Hawaii is the youngest in the chain, still straddling the hotspot that fuels its volcanoes—there are five individual volcanoes that make up the island. Of those five, Kīlauea is the youngest, comprising the southeastern edge of the island. Kīlauea’s summit is home to a collapsed crater called Halemaʻumaʻu Crater. In 2008, a new vent appeared in the floor of the crater, which has hosted a lake of roiling lava ever since.
