MAUNA LOA'S 1935 LAVA FLOW IN MODERN MEDIA COVERAGE is the subject of this week's Volcano Watch, written by U.S.
In ongoing media coverage of demonstrations at the base of Mauna Kea, many hundreds of people can be seen standing on a black lava flow that surrounds the Pu_uhuluhulu Native Tree Sanctuary adjacent to the Daniel K. Inouye Highway. That same lava flow continues on the other side of the highway, which traverses the saddle between Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea.
The eruption that produced the lava flow started at the summit crater of Mauna Loa on November 21, 1935, and quickly progressed into the volcano's upper Northeast Rift Zone. From there, lava advanced to the west, away from Hilo, the largest city on the island. On November 27, another vent opened lower on the north flank of Mauna Loa, from which an additional lava flow quickly advanced to the north.
Within ten days, the flow had stalled at the base of Mauna Kea but remained active. This lava was known as the Humu_ula flow.
