The Island of Hawai'i is composed of five volcanoes i.e;Mauna Loa and Kilauea–have erupted repeatedly in this century. The interaction of lava flowing into the seawater of Kilauea caused explosions that threw fragments of molten lava high into the air. Some of these incandescent clasts fell on top of the sea cliff behind the ocean entry forming a small spatter cone.

Because of Hawaii volcano a section of sea cliff, top, has fallen into the ocean and the portion of cracked and unstable hill is shown after the bottom collapsed. Even though the government advised the public to stay away from the volcano but some tourists were spotted near it. The collapse of the sea cliff did not diminish the hazards and as long as the volcano continues to flow into the ocean, the area is still quite hazardous.
