The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) reported on Sunday that the Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island started to erupt on Sunday afternoon, with flows now restricted to the adjacent crater floor.

Ninety-nine percent of the gas molecules emitted during a volcanic eruption are water vapor (H2O), carbon dioxide (CO2), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). The remaining one percent is comprised of small amounts of hydrogen sulfide, carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen fluoride, and other minor gas species.

Strong seismic activity and a “rapid uplift” of the peak, according to USGS, preceded the eruption. As it assesses the eruption, the government changed the volcano alert from watch to warning and increased Kilauea’s aviation color code from orange to red.

Numerous earthquakes and a significant eruption at Kilauea in 2019 caused the destruction of hundreds of houses and businesses. This year’s eruptions of the volcano occurred in January and June.

Fissures near the volcano’s crater’s base are producing lava flows on the crater floor, according to webcam images.
