Video: At 10:28 a.m. HST this morning (April 6), rock falls from the Overlook crater wall into Kīlauea Volcano's summit lava lake
triggered an explosive event. This video, taken by the K2cam, shows a dark pulsing plume
and debris. The explosion hurled spatter (molten lava
fragments) and lithic
blocks (older crater wall) onto the rim at the old visitor overlook and to the southwest. This area is closed to the public due to volcanic hazards such as today's event.
