With all the lava flowing out of Kilauea, a new island have appeared off of Kapoho.  Kilauea has now been actively spewing out lava for more than 2 months.  Kilauea has been more or less an active volcano since 1983 but it only had a continuous lava flow since the last eruption.

As you may know the all the Hawaiian Islands were formed by volcanoes, so this new island is just part of the changing earth.  Hawaii is just one of the many active volcano which have been waking up.

The Oraefajokull volcano in Iceland has been showing signs of a possible eruption, the Anak Krakatau in Indonesia has been having continuous explosions and this is alarming as the last time Krakatoa erupted it killed more than 36,000 people.  It’s explosive force was equivalent to 13,000 atomic bombs going off simultaneously.
