HONOLULU (KHON2) — Scientists at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory continue to monitor Kīlauea after a swarm of earthquakes on Tuesday, Aug. 24.
The alert level remains at an “Orange Watch” and changes continue at the summit, but officials said Kīlauea is not erupting.
The strong sequence of earthquakes began at around 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 23.
Officials believed the activity could potentially indicate shallow movement of magma beneath the south part of Kīlauea caldera.
