The 2018 eruption of Kīlauea volcano on Hawai‘i provided some spectacular footage of cracks opening in roads, fountains of glowing lava, and billowing clouds of gas. The event had people asking if such activity could occur in Auckland.
DEVORA released a statement explaining how the eruption on Hawai‘i compares with what we might expect in Auckland if our volcanic field reactivates.
