Now, overnight we have a new eruption within Halemaʻumaʻu crater at Kīlauea’s summit on the big island of Hawaii.
Hot lava is even bubbling out of fissures in the crater wall.
Plus, it's fun to try to pronounce "Halem'uma'u" like a real Hawaiian.
It's something like "Ha -lay Maw-OO Maw-OO...," with extreme exaggeration of the spaces between the syllables. Practice by turning to someone who isn't expecting anything and announce, "there's a new volcanic eruption occurring now in the Ha-lay Mah-OO Mah-OO caldera," and see what happens.
The guy doing the civil defense warning announcement pronounces "Halem'uma'u" correctly, like a proper Hawaiian should.
