Volcán de Hawái forma gran “iceberg” de lava

Un video del volcán Kilauea, en Hawái, publicado en Instagram ha llamado de la atención de los internautas debido a que algo parecido a un “iceberg” de lava fue captado mientras se desplazaba por un camino de magma.

Esta figura con dimensiones de seis metros cúbicos fue bautizado por lugareños como “bola de lava“, según Wendy Stovall, especialista del Servicio Geológico de Estados Unidos.

Estas imágenes y otras, recopiladas por la reportera Mileka Lincoln son muy solicitadas en las redes sociales debido a que reflejan la magnitud de estas erupciones que comenzaron a principios de mayo.

#LeilaniEstatesEruption #KilaueaVolcano LATEST (July 7 at 12:30 PM): More aerial footage taken by the Hawaiʻi County Fire Department during their overflight of the #Fissure8 fountain. According to the update released by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory: “Fountains from Fissure 8 spatter cone continue to supply lava to the open channel with small, short-lived overflows early last night. The spatter cone is now about 55 m (180 ft) tall at its highest point, and fountains rarely rise above that point. As shown by the July 06 thermal map of the flow field, the main lava channel no longer reaches the coast, the channel flow seems to stall about 2 km (1.2 mi) inland of the coast; however, lava is oozing into the ocean from multiple points primarily along the northern section of a broad flow front. In addition, multiple ooze-outs fed flows on the north and the southwest edge of the main `a`a flow but neither had lava actively entering the ocean. Fissure 22 is still weakly spattering this morning. Another collapse explosion event occurred 6:04 PM HST on July 6 at Kīlauea's summit with the equivalent energy of a magnitude-5.3 earthquake. Seismicity dropped abruptly for several hours afterwards, but has since returned to 25-35 earthquakes per hour, a number of which are in the magnitude 2-3 range. Another collapse explosion is expected later today. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halemaʻumaʻu continues in response to ongoing subsidence at the summit.” Stay tuned to @HawaiiNewsNow for the very latest developments #HInews #HawaiiNews #HNN #HawaiiNewsNow #WeAreYourSource
