Leilani-Eruption in 2018 – Part 1

Kilauea’s Leilani-eruption took place on Hawaii and begun in May 2018.  The lava lakes in the craters of Halema’uma’u and Pu’u O’o drained off through the east rift. A dyke intruded on the coastal plain near Pahoa. In Leilani-Estates more than 25 fissures opened. Lava fountains fed lava flows that reached the ocean. Several hundrets houses were destroyed.
