Latest updates on Mauna Loa eruption – Alert raised in Hawaii as world’s largest active volcano erupts

Officials are warning residents

Though the lava is currently contained, officials have reminded residents of the unpredictability of the lava flows.

“Based on past events, the early stages of a Mauna Loa eruption can be very dynamic, and the location and encroachment of lava flows can change rapidly,” they said.

“If the eruption stays in Moku’āweoweo, the lava flows will most likely be trapped within the caldera walls.”

“However, if the vents migrate outside their walls, lava flows can move rapidly down the slope.”
