Kilauea Rising

Mount Kilauea in Hawaii is rising. Overlook crater, an elliptical crater, has been rumbling for quite some time, but in the past few days she's really grown uneasy, lava rising some 26 feet in the past 72 hours. That puts the flow only 13 feet from the volcanoes rim and once it goes over....the lava tumbles down the slopes. Nothing really dramatic, but something awful cool!

Eventually it might work its way to the sea (though I don't think so, this is pretty high up), but if it does, it will look wicked smart!
