Kilauea eruption 1960 & 2018 (Then and Now)

Kilauea volcano eruption in Hawaii 1960 and 2018 (Then and Now).

On January 12, 1960 residents of Kapoho experienced over 1,000 small earthquakes shaking the area. Deep cracks opened up in the street, and there are historic photos of residents inspecting the damage. The eruption began on the night of the 13th, spilling lava out in the middle of a sugar cane field just above Kapoho.

In early May 2018, hundreds of small earthquakes were detected on Kīlauea’s East rift zone. On May 3, 2018, the volcano erupted in lower Puna after a 5.0 earthquake earlier in the day, causing evacuations of the Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens subdivisions. A seemingly related 6.9 magnitude earthquake occurred on May 4. By May 9, 27 houses had been destroyed in Leilani Estates.
