USA: See depths of drained volcano crater at Pu’u ‘O’o – CREDIT: US Geological Survey, Department Of The Interior/USGS
Helicopter overflight footage filmed on Thursday shows the depths of the drained crater at Pu’u ‘O’o in Kilauea Volcano’s lower East Rift Zone. According to the US Geological Survey, the floor of the crater collapsed and the lava lake drained, which has resulted in the funnel-like appearance of the crater that has a “deeper cylindrical shaft,” with rubble filling the base of the shaft.
