Kilauea could erupt again after peace and quiet, claims expert

The Express (U.K.)

But there is still activity at the Hawaii volcano and on Sunday morning UK time geologists recorded powerful magnitude 4.2 quakes at Kilauea.

The US Geological Survey (USGS) recorded the earthquake at a distance of 12 miles southeast of Kilauea and at a depth of more than three miles.

The earthquake struck Hawaii just three days after the Seismological Society of America (SSA) warned past indicators point towards future activity at Kilauea.

Jacqueline Caplan-Auerbach, a volcanologist from Western Washington University, revealed at the 2019 SSA Annual Meeting similarities between Kilauea and Loihi.
