Big Island’s Kamokuna ocean entry area collapses

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park Service has confirmed that Big Island’s Kamokuna ocean entry, a public viewing area for the lava entering the ocean, has been temporarily closed after a large section of the delta collapsed into the ocean.

Authorities announced that a large section of the 26-acre lava delta collapsed into the ocean at around 2:45 p.m. on eve of the New Year. The collapse launched showers of hot rock into the air and triggered huge waves that eroded away part of nearby sea cliffs as well as viewing area.
