"Mauna Loa Unleashed: Volcanic Eruption in Progress"

Mauna Loa, a part of the Hawaiian island of Hawaii, erupted. It is a dormant volcano that did not erupt for more than 38 years. Mauna Loa is taller than the platform of all the Hawaiian islands and occupies half of the Big Island. Since the beginning of written history in 1843, there have been 34 eruptions, as recorded by NOAA.

It creates cracks and expels magma fountains that drape and trickle down the ridge of the steep mountain's rocky slopes. Pele, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes and rebirth, is believed to inhabit the summit of its lava lake's rocky peak, which is now one of the world's active volcanos. According to folkloric legend and unofficial lore, the goddess may choose to curse those who disobey her in the conduct of grading.

Mauna Loa erupted around 11:30 p.m. Hawaii Standard Time, November 21, 2022 , the first time in 38 years. The record eruption did not pose an immediate threat to the communities below, but the U.S. Geological Survey advised that roughly 200,000 people on the Big Island that it can be a very dynamic eruption and where and what the amount of magma liquefaction will occur can change rapidly.

Presently, lava flows remain in the summit location and are not threatening downslope communities, the report says. Winds may carry volcanic gas and possible ash and Pele s hair downwind. The phenomenon known as Pele s hair is named for Pelehonuamea, the Hawaiian goddess of volcanoes and earth, who supposedly has the power to create through destruction.

Pelehonuamea's physical presence can be undoubtedly felt by those who are around her volcanic territory and live within the hearts of those who fight her. The reverence that Pelehonuamea inspires is most often not approached with dread, but instead with reverance.

The bubbling lava posed no real threat to residential houses, but lava that explodes might pose a safety threat if it spat out fine, golden strands in the wind. Because they're so light, the strands tend to blow on the wind.

They cluster in low-lying areas to grow hair into various thicknesses. While it is said to be hair, administrators warned that the substance is actually glass.
