Lava continued to gush from the Kilauea Volcano’s fissure 8 in Hawaii’s Puna district on Saturday, June 16. According to the US Geological Survey on that date, lava fountains from fissure 8 “pulsed to heights of 185 to 200 feet overnight” and the molten rock continued to flow down a channel to the ocean at Kapoho. Lava has covered nine square miles since eruptions started in May, Hawaii News Now reported. Credit: TSgt Andrew Jackson via Storyful
