"Highlights of Summit Eruptions at Kilauea:1790 A violent explosion blankets the area with 16 ft of ash. Part of the caldera is formed.1823 A boiling lava lake forms in Halema'uma'u Crater & overflows many times onto the caldera floor.1924 Lava lake period ends with a series of violent steam explosions. Boulders strewn across caldera.1934 Lava levels rise inside [the crater]. After this eruption, the volcano is quiet for 18 years.1952 Fiery fountains with Halema'uma'u Crater produce 64,000,000 cubic yards of new lava, with showers of pumice.1959 A series of tall fountains at Kilauea Iki Crater build a cone of cinders 150 ft high & bury a section of Crater Rim Drive.1967 Lava lake forms inside [the crater], with fountains up to 200 ft high. Lava produced at rates of up to 400 cubic yards/sec.1974 Curtains of fire appear in the caldera. Lava advances across [roads].1982 With only 3 hours warning, fissures open on caldera floor. Lava breaks out along cracks in wall & floor of [the crater]."
