No End in Sight for a Hawaii Volcano’s Ocean Lava Show | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

No End in Sight for a Hawaii Volcano’s Ocean Lava Show

Off the coast of the island of Hawaii, lava is flowing into the ocean like blood from a ruptured artery. From the Kilauea volcano’s Kamokuna ocean entry, it hits the salty water and explodes. Molten rock shoots upward and outward. A steamy cloud of acid rises from below. Beneath the ocean’s surface, lava cools. Rubble forms.

Normally it stacks up, creating a rocky shelf on which the lava settles: a lava delta. But this time, the flow has continued to gush nearly 100 feet down, into the sea, for a whole month.

The lava on the Kalapana side attracts not only sightseers now, One of the least talked about aspects is that Pele the Hawaiian Volcano Goddess's lava ocean entry point near Kalapana is increasingly becoming a pilgrimage place for couples and business founders asking Pele various favors.
