At 1.24am local time this morning, a collapse explosion event occurred at K?lauea’s summit, according to USGs.

An ash-poor plume rose 1,200 ft above the ground surface and the energy released by the event was equivalent to a M5.3 earthquake.

Lava flow activity has also continued at fissure 22.

Mount Kilauea has been wreaking havoc for nearly two months after first erupting on May 3.

More than 2,000 residents have been forced to flee as 650 homes have been destroyed by lava.

Around 600 people are still living in temporary accommodation.

Local wildlife is also at risk due to 6,000 acres of land being covered by molten rock.

Over the past few weeks, the crater at the volcano’s summit has grown vastly as magma has flowed out of the cavity from various fissures around the island.
