Violent eruption of 1924 will be topic discussion on Tuesday
“Earthquakes and explosions: Shocking events at Kapoho and Halema‘uma‘u in 1924” will be a free public talk at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 21, as Volcano Awareness Month continues with an “After Dark in the Park” program at Kilauea Visitor Center in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory volunteer Ben Gaddis will tell the story of Kilauea Volcano’s most violent eruption of the 20th century — in May 1924 — from the perspective of the people who lived through it.
National Park Service entrance fees apply. Details about this and other Volcano Awareness Month talks are posted on the HVO website at hvo.wr.usgs.gov. For more information, call 985-6011 or email askHVO@usgs.gov.
