Earthquakes today MAPPED: Magnitude 4.2 earthquake strikes Kilauea volcano 1

Kilauea famously blew its top in 2018, spewing out lava over approximately 13.7 miles of land on Big Island from May to September.

Authorities estimate the volcano caused £615 million in property damage, but it has remained quiet since September 2018.

The USGS currently has it on a “normal” alert level, stating they have observed only “minor geologic changes” since 2018.

They added some conditions continue to pose potential dangers to people coming within close proximity to the volcano.
