This past week (last week of April 2015) , the lava lake inside Kilauea volcano began to rise quickly. Locals came from miles around to witness the rare volcanic event.

The lava lake rose beyond its normal banks, and spread out across the greater Kilauea caldera.  Over the past 3-4 days the high lake has remained rather steady.

Today, May 2 2015, the lava lake has now made a rapid surge outwards (upwards?) .
