|Fleur de Lys (12695.8 km NNE from epicenter) / MMI II (Very weak shaking): Last Night at about 12:30pm I felt a sway on the Land when I was standing. The Sway lasted about 3-5 mins. Yet We are a long ways from the Quake, itself. I'm thinking that with all the Snowmelt at this time of the year, North America. Is adding Pressure to the earth crust and this may add to the Volcano in Hawaii ?? I'm thinking that Hawaii will split into and maybe a tital wave will be caused.|

: A strong earthquake swarm and increased inflation were detected in August 2015 and triggered authorities to raise the alert level, as volcanologists think that a larger eruption could follow. News and updates on the events can be found on this page.
Kelut volcano photos
: A new lava dome grew inside the crater lake during the effusive eruption in late 2007, replacing most of the lake. Watch the birth of a new mountain!
