An astounding video of a ‘lava boat’ in Hawaii shows a river of hot lava tearing off a huge chunk of rock

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano continues to erupt. A new video shows a fast-flowing river of lava tearing off a chunk of rock, a phenomenon geologists are calling a "lava boat."

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano is producing eerie blue flames only visible at night, and could cause deadly explosions

Buildups of methane, a by-product from the lava produced by the ongoing volcanic activity at Kilauea, have caused flare-ups of blue light which can only be seen well at night. This is on top of lava engulfing the area near the volcano, and toxic clouds of gas.

Aerial video shows huge lava flows streaming from Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano days after it erupted

The Big Island volcano last erupted on May 17 after weeks of intense activity. Molten rock has reached as far as the Pacific Ocean, creating a deadly haze of acidic volcanic gas with tiny shards of glass suspended in it.

Hawaii’s Kilauea volcano has exploded, sending ash clouds 30,000 feet into the sky — here are before-and-after photos of the destruction

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has violently erupted, spewing ash over 30,000 feet into the sky. Satellite images from before and after the ongoing eruptions show how severe the situation has gotten.

Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano is causing earthquakes after shooting out ‘ballistic blocks’ three times larger than bowling balls

Earthquakes up to 4.4 magnitude have caused damage to buildings and roads with cracks appearing. Halemaumau crater began shooting out "ballistic blocks" up to 60cm into a nearby parking lot, and USGS warned explosions could become more powerful.
The US Geological Survey raised its alert level for Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano to red on Tuesday, but some ambitious golfers apparently still found time to hit the links, leading to some stunning images.

The Kilauea Volcano in Hawaii triggered the state’s highest-level warning, indicating it could become ‘more explosive’

A hazardous volcanic eruption is underway the USGS said on Tuesday. Kilauea Volcano "may become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles near the vent." USGS also raised its alert level from Orange to Red.

Hawaii could see acid rain and boulders falling from the sky, warnings suggest — and fear is mounting as more cracks appear

There's potential for Hawaii's Kilauea volcano to propel gigantic boulders into the sky, spew noxious gases like sulfur dioxide, and cause acid rain to fall over Hawaii's Big Island if its eruption intensifies.
