Mount Kilauea on Hawaii’s Big Island is one of the world’s most active volcanoes. Its latest eruption started in 1983 and has been going on ever since. On May 3, 2018, the island was struck by a 5.0-magnitude earthquake. Hours later, Kilauae volcano sent clouds of ash and jets of lava high into the air. Fissures opened in the earth, spewing steam. Lava flowed down the mountain toward the sea. Neighborhoods were evacuated. As the eruption continues, Kilauea is changing the shape of the island.
