Lava from Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano was shooting as high as 80 feet in the air Sunday after the collapse of the floor of the volcano's Pu'u 'O'o crater a day earlier.
Hawaii Volcano Observatory scientists said the floor of the crater dropped 377 feet over almost three hours on SaturdayÂ and a fissure developed between the Pu'u 'O'o and Napau craters on Kilauea.
The lava lake on Kilauea's summit has drop since the collapse, scientists said in a press release Sunday.
Kilauea is the youngest volcano in Hawaii and perhaps the world's most active, according to the volcano observatory. The current activity is a continuation of an eruption that began in 1983.
Kilauea, the home of Hawaii's goddess of fire Pele, has erupted 34 times since 1952.
