Then and now. It has proven difficult to exactly match past and present views of Kīlauea's summit to show the dramatic changes in the volcanic landscape, but here's our latest attempt. At left is a photo taken on November 28, 2008, with a distinct gas plume rising from the vent that had opened within Halema'uma'u about eight months earlier. At right is a photo taken on August 1, 2018, to approximate the 2008 view for comparison.

Civic Engagement Comment Summary Report

Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park (HAVO) and the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) have released the Civic Engagement Comment Summary Report.

The intent of the project is to repair and/or replace park buildings and critical infrastructure as well as USGS-operated facilities and equipment damaged during the 2018 eruption and summit collapse of Kīlauea volcano. The project also includes plans for the potential future use of the Uēkahuna Bluff area, which has geologic, natural, and cultural significance and is regarded as sacred by many Native Hawaiians and other groups. In addition, enhanced visitor services within the summit area were included in the design concepts for the project.
