Kilauea crater will never be the same. Hundreds of earthquakes still rocking the area daily. I guess I may have taken it for granted the park is always there. Archive image from a few years ago.
Meanwhile back at fissure 8, Tutu Pele is still alive and well. Channelized rivers flow from here all the way to the ocean, about 8 miles away.
What an insane perspective. Lava continues to flow from fissure 8 in Leilani Estates (right side) several miles to the ocean (plume on left). But to top it off I had the pleasure of shooting with legendary lava man @gbradlewis This image was captured from @kalapanaculturaltours lava boat experience. * new information for lava boat tours posted on their website*
Pele's Path...Fissure 8 still pumping as we enter our second month of eruption in Puna. From evacuation to recover the people of Puna stay strong! Prayers to all effected.
The new Pu'u at fissure 8 continues to grow as Pele keeps pumping. Lava still flowing to the ocean, hundreds of homes destroyed and people displaced. Thoughts and prayers to all affected.
Taking it all in. There is nothing like watching the raw power of Tutu Pele. Here we stood in awe as fissure 8 pours out millions of gallons on molten lava consuming everything in her path. With a heavy heart I pray for all those effected.
A short clip of the action at Fissure 8 as Tutu Pele pours out her Fury. Prayers always to all involved.
She moves ahead. With no sign of letting up, Pele is marching forward reclaiming everything in her path. Prayers to all effected 🙏🏻
Residents watching the devastation as Tutu Pele marches through their subdivision. Still with a heavy heart I pray for all effected.
My heart is so heavy after witnessing the devastation in Leilani Estates. Love and Prayers to all effected in Puna. This image is of the new Pu'u being created by fissure 8 along the east rift zone here on the Big Island. The raw and beautiful power of Tutu Pele.
So blessed to have had the opportunity to to see the active lava flows here on the Big Island. Fissure 8, the most active put on quite a show. Mahalo boys for the mish!
Fire 🔥 and Water 💦 One of those early mornings along the shores of Kaili'ili. My heart goes out to all those effected by recent flows in Puna.
