The 1950 eruption was the largest and most spectacular eruption from the southwest rift zone of Mauna Loa Volcano, Hawaii, since written records have been kept. It was especially noteworthy, for lava was erupted from a nearly continuous 20-km-long fissure along the middle portion of the rift zone. Flows reached the sea in less than four hours. The description includes 5 photographs, a map of a portion ... Full description.
