I am still a bit in shock at what we were able to witness this past weekend. My friend and I went on a spur the moment trip to Big Island of Hawaii to document a bit of the Kilauea Volcano action going on right now. The first day we chartered a helicopter with @paradisehelicopters and the second day we did the Lava Boat Tour. It was an incredible experience, to say the least, but also very eye-opening and pretty sad. Seeing the area where over 400 (over 600 now I believe) homes were taken out was pretty crazy. Seeing how fast the lava was flowing out the fissure 8 was even crazier, as seen here in this image and video to come! But seeing Kapoho Bay completely filled within days and Leilani Estates practically gone, was definitely the most shocking part. Plenty more shots and stories to come as I have time to get it all edited. “Since May 3, 2018, Kilauea has erupted more than 110 million cubic meters of lava. This fissure has produced a lava fountain pulsing to heights of 185 to 200 feet (55 to 60 meters).” This shot was taken on June 16, 2018.
