US Geological Survey warns of shallow earthquake in Hawaii


The summit of Hawaii’s Kilauea has been found to be under the influence of a shallow seismic storm, according to the United States Geological Survey. After a temporary break, the second-largest volcano in Hawaii is anticipated to start erupting again soon.

“Resumption of eruptive activity at Kilauea summit is likely soon,” the US Geological Survey stated in a statement regarding the situation. According to sources, lava flow stopped on Tuesday after 61 days of volcanic activity, but Kilauea has continued to live up to its reputation as one of the most active volcanoes in the world. From September 2021 to December 2022, it also erupted. According to sources, the 2018 Kilauea eruption damaged over 700 homes.

On the other side, Hawaii’s largest volcano, Mauna Loa, erupted over the course of two weeks in December of last year on the Big Island of Hawaii after apparently going dormant for 38 years.

It should be emphasised that the locals observe traditional customs like singing and chanting to honour the eruption by honouring its cultural and spiritual value. Native Hawaiians present “hookupu” in homage to Pele, the goddess of fire and volcanoes.
