We haven’t seen anything like this since Hawaii first became a state back in 1959. HAWAII’s Big Island has been rocked by over 12,000 earthquakes in the past 30 days according to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), far outstripping the island’s monthly average of 1,000 quakes.
Kilauea began erupting on May 3rd, and it hasn’t stopped rumbling yet. In fact, authorities are telling us that Hawaii has been struck by “over 12,000 earthquakes” during the last 30 days.
That is an extraordinary amount of shaking, and many are now becoming concerned that fundamental physical changes are happening to the islands.
As one USGS official has noted, we have never seen earthquakes happen on the Big Island with this sort of frequency ever before…
While most of the earthquakes have been relatively mild at magnitude 2 or 3, the largest earthquake was a massive 6.9 magnitude tremor on May 4, along with a 5.4 magnitude quake on June 4 and a M5.2 today.
Brian Shiro, a supervisory geophysicist at the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said the island was witnessing the highest rate of quakes ever measured at the summit.
The following video is compilation from a helicopter overflight of Kīlauea Volcano’s lower East Rift Zone on June 6, 2018, around 6:30 AM. The video shows the fissure 8 lava fountain feeding a channelized lava flow that travels northeast around the Kapoho cone, and then flows toward the south to enter the ocean at Kapoho Bay and Vacationland. The ocean entry has completely filled Kapoho Bay with lava, building a delta that extends 0.8 miles from shore:
