Background:

Water discoloration, sulfur odor, possible boiling water, and possible minor floating pumice were observed 60 km NW of the tip of Oahu on 22 May 1956. The seamount at that location has a depth of about 1200 m at the end of the Kaena Ridge. Macdonald (1959) suggested that a submarine eruption may have occurred, but noted that evidence is less certain than that for the 1955 report of a submarine eruption near Necker Island.
