"Starting on May 3, 2018, Kilauea volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii erupted," says William. "More than 20 fissures opened up in Leilani Estates subdivision. By July, the amount of lava gushing from the fissures was estimated to be a steady 26,000 US gallons per second. The lava heading south reached the sea and sent huge plumes of steam and haze into the air. If the wind was in your favor, some steam would blow away and give you a glimpse of glowing magma entering the sea."
