Hawaii The 1959/60 Kapoho eruption in Kilauea Iki Crater

Rates : 5

Hawaii The 1960 Kapoho eruption and its predecessor, the 1959 summit eruption in Kilauea Iki Crater, together formed a summit-flank sequence that has been considered a model for how Kilauea “should” behave. The Kapoho eruption caused havoc in lower Puna, an idyllic rural paradise until the lava fountains and flows covered farm land and villages”.
