The U.S. Geological Survey says the eruption began late Sunday night in the summit caldera of the volcano on the Big Island.Early Monday, it said lava flows were contained within the summit area and weren't threatening nearby communities. The agency warned residents at risk from Mauna Loa lava flows should review their eruption preparations. Scientists had been on alert because of a recent spike in earthquakes at the summit of the volcano, which last erupted in 1984.Mauna Loa is one of five volcanoes that together make up the Big Island of Hawaii, which is the southernmost island in the Hawaiian archipelago.Mauna Loa, rising 13,679 feet (4,169 meters) above sea level, is the much larger neighbor to Kilauea volcano, which erupted in a residential neighborhood and destroyed 700 homes in 2018. Some of its slopes are much steeper than Kilauea's - so when it erupts, lava can flow much faster.Ken Hon, the scientist-in-charge at the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, said at an early morning news conference. Magma moved to the surface, although lava flows were contained within the summit area and weren't threatening nearby communities."We don't want to try and second guess the volcano," Hon said. "We have to let it actually show us what it's going to do and then we inform people of what is happening ASAP."===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
