That makes sense, since a person being in there would be endangering the lives of rescue workers who'd be sent in if the person got stuck in there.

It is being in areas which have been closed to the public for safety's sake. Here's a bit from that link
quote:
TOURISTS visiting Hawaii’s Big Island could face imprisonment or huge fines if they are caught taking pictures of Mount Kilauea in lava zone areas which are closed off to the general public.
I might also note:

Many digital photos may have the LAT & LONG, Date & Time as well as other information embedded. So, even if not actually caught in such an area... photos posted online (FB pages for example) could be used to determine/verify violations. Of course; this applies not only to photos of lava in Hawaii, but to generally any situation... for example, proving one's whereabouts (alibi) IF suspected of committing some crime.
 


Thanks. I remember taking picture of lava while not being able to go past a certain point. We could get up close enough to some lava to feel the heat, and they weren’t really red. You could see the slow move beyond where we were.

I agree that being dumb endangers rescuers too. I think this eruption is faster than those that used to allow tourist. Breaking the law is dumb especially if it’s nor civil disobedience which aims to accept the consequences while getting a point across!

Kilauea Selfies Lead to Dozens of Arrests

People arrested for trespassing near the Hawaii volcano also face fines up to $5,000.

Since fissure eruptions began in early May, Hawaiian officials say they've arrested dozens of people who have gotten dangerously close to the Kilauea Volcano to take selfies.

Despite the dangers from hot lava and harmful gas emissions, and warnings from police to stay away from the area, some visitors have taken big risks to be the first to stand on new land. ABC News reported as many as a dozen people have been arrested in the last 10 days for trying to take selfies at the volcano, and local estimates say at least 40 have been jailed since eruptions began at nearby fissures May 3.

A police officer told KITV.com that one detainee decided to take the selfie because "they were enticed by other social media postings."

June 24th
Kilauea crater sees collapse EXPLOSION spew steam 4,500ft

The United States Geological Survey (USGS) warned on Sunday morning the Hawaii volcano summit collapsed after being hit by 40 earthquakes an hour.

The resulting summit explosion was likened to a magnitude 5.3 earthquake at the volcano’s crater.

The USGS said: “At 6.52pm HST on June 22, after approximately 25 hours of elevated seismicity, a collapse explosion occurred at the summit producing an ash-poor steam plume that rose 500 ft above the ground surface, 4,500 ft above sea level, before drifting to the southwest.

“The energy released by the event was equivalent to a magnitude 5.3 earthquake.

Is there a new volcano on Hawaii?

Kilauea, the most active volcano on Hawaii, has been in continual eruption since 1983. It entered a new phase in early May when fractures along a rift on the eastern side of the volcano opened during a series of earthquakes – some of which became volcanic fissures from which lava was erupted.

These fissures allowed magma that had been ponded in a lava summit lake to drain onto the ground surface as lava flows lower down the mountain. This was close to a residential subdivision known as Leilani Estates, where a new volcanic cone has since developed.

Kilauea is buttressed on its north-west side by the enormous mass of Mauna Loa volcano, but its south-east slopes face the ocean and are unsupported. The magma from beneath the volcano usually erupts from the summit of the volcano, and there was a spectacular lava lake there in March. However two rift zones (areas where the volcano is splitting apart), extending east and south-west from the summit, can make it possible for lava to erupts from Kilauea's flanks too.

Kilauea's continual eruption is creating a new fissure so big it could soon be classed as Hawaii's newest volcano

Kilauea's continual eruptions have created two rift zones extending from summit

Lava is now erupting from Kilauea's flanks in addition to the volcano's summit

According to USGS, 23 volcanic fractures have become fissures with erupting lava, and fissure 8 became dominant and built a cone approaching 200ft high

The question arises if the fissure 8 cone is now a volcano in its own right

Reed,

I was thinking the same thing (as to what to do with my millions in DJT/GOP TAX CUTS)! ROTF   :rotf:

Fissure 8 Reaches New Heights and Spawns Giant Lava Balls

he Kilauea Volcano continues to create new problems as lava spreads across parts of Hawaii’s Big Island. Among the volcano’s many active cracks and lava streams, Fissure 8 not only continues to release waves of rapidly moving lava, but has become even more dangerous thanks to heightened ranges of splatter and lava balls that continue to fly into the air.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) provided an update on the Kilauea Volcano Saturday. Fountains of lava shot into the air from Fissure 8 reaching as high as 180 feet. The molten rock flowing from the fissure created small, intermittent overflows that only last for a short period of time. As is the case with the Kilauea volcano, new formations and objects appear due to lava cooling, hence the appearance of the accretionary lava ball.

Personally, I have no desire to and would never go to Hawaii (volcano or not). But, that's another matter. Meanwhile:

"Nothing like this on Kilauea has happened for more than 200 years"

Earthquakes and collapses at Kilauea's summit continue - the Halema'uma'u Crater has now tripled in depth.

Jessica Ferracane of Hawaii Volcanoes National Park said, "This is a historic eruption happening. The USGS told us that nothing like this on Kilauea has happened for more than 200 years."

The Hawaii Volcanoes national park closed for a record 80 plus days coming up on this weeks 102nd anniversary of being open.

"We don't know how long it's going to go on? We don't know, it's an indefinite. Closure damage is happening every day unfortunately but this is an act of nature," said Ferracane.

While its shut down, park rangers continue to work in nearby communities relaying information to the public.

The National park also monitoring Highway 11 along with the state and county. While it remains open, its riddled with cracks and sinkholes on shoulders.

"Governor Ige and Mayor Kim or making every effort to ensure that the public is safe and that as they travel from Kau to Hilo and Hilo to Kau that were monitoring the situation on a daily basis," said Wil Okabe, Hawaii County Managing Director.

Beyond daily assessments, the state department of transportation plans to add cameras in the area for real time monitoring and ground penetrating radar to assess risks underground.

In case the road becomes impassable, a detour route is being worked on.

Will Hurricane Hector Interact with Kīlauea?

While it has been quiet in the Atlantic, the Eastern Pacific is cranking out disturbances, tropical storms, and hurricanes on a regular basis. Hector marks the 8th named storm in that part of the world. While still a ways off from the Hawaiian islands, you can see that the WeatherOps forecast path has it starting to curve WNW over the coming days. It is currently expected to max out as a strong Category 3 storm as it moves into slightly cooler sea surface temperatures.

Model forecasts are mostly in agreement with the northwesterly turn. Extended models show Hector moving either near the southern coast of the Island of Hawaii or just to the north where it would approach Maui.

Looking at a model loop for the coming two weeks, you can see Hector racing off to the NW in the lower left corner. Two more tropical storms then show up. As the smaller one dances around the larger, it is absorbed in what is known as the Fujiwhara Effect. Then another storm skates across the screen in a similar path to our current hurricane. However, long-range models are not yet exact enough to accurately forecast that far in advance.
...from the above article, here's another embedded graphic: weatherops.com: Hector heads toward Hawaii
