Kilauea volcano update: Rockfall trigger explosive eruption of lava lake on 23 July

Explosive eruption at  Halema'uma'u lava lake on 23 July

Strong bubbling in the lava lake following the explosion
A piece of the crater walls of the Halema'uma'u lava lake collapsed on 23 July and triggered a small explosive eruption. Liquid spatter was ejected to the outer perimeter of the pit crater (including webcam position and the closed observation area) and an ash plume was generated.
The reason for the event was a sudden disturbance of the gas influx and release equilibrium of the lava lake induced by the rockfall, triggering a spontaneous and very strong degassing phase.
