Volcano Watch: Hualālai’s Wahapele Eruption — Cone-Building, Explosive Phreatic Activity And Lava Flows

“Volcano Watch” is a weekly article and activity update written by U.S. Geological Survey Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists and affiliates. This week’s article was written by Hawaiian Volcano Observatory research geologist Natalia Deligne.

While our attention is generally drawn to the Island of Hawai‘i’s most active volcanoes, Kīlauea and Mauna Loa, it is also important to keep watch on the Island of Hawai‘i’s third-most active volcano, Hualālai, which underlies the most populated areas of Kailua-Kona and the central Kona coast.

The requirement is a change from last year, which mandated players be up-to-date on their immunization shots in order to take the field. It’s less stringent in that regard, as case counts have dropped considerably compared to a year ago, and is a number of eased regulations the Hawai‘i Department of Education has implemented this school year compared to the pandemic days.
