Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to Reopen This Weekend – Without Any Lava | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to Reopen This Weekend – Without Any Lava

Months after eruptions at the Big Island's Kilauea volcano forced the record-long closure of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, the popular tourist destination will reopen Saturday without one key element — lava.

Back in April, a massive lava lake continued to boil and bubble at the park until eruptions beginning in May emptied the lake entirely of its molten rock. Now, all that remains is a large, gaping hole.

"Beginning in May, 2018, the lava lake that existed inside Halema‘uma‘u crater disappeared and lava flows from Pu?u ???? crater have ceased," the park warned on its website. "There is no molten lava or lava glow to see anywhere in or out of the park."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Claire and I were lucky to have visited the volcano while there were active lava flows!
