Hawaiʻi The Fires of Life

Product Description

On November 14, 1959, Kīlauea Iki - a small crater outside the east rim of Kīlauea Volcano's caldera - erupted continuously for thirty-six days. At one point, the fire fountain reached a height of 1,900 feet, the highest volcanic eruption ever recorded in Hawai'i. Lava layers formed a 'lake' as deep as 400 feet, burying a rain forest. Volcanic ash and lava destroyed a total area of 1,250 acres. This affected area came to be known as 'The Devastation Area'. The vegetation in the Devastation Area was either severly damaged or completely destroyed as a result of the 1959 eruption, except for small patches of acreage. Yet today, rain forests and native shrubs flourish once again in addition to new forbs, ferns, and grasses that have taken root.
