Info from Licensor: "In 2018 the biggest eruption in to to 300 years in Hawaii occurred. 1,300,000,000 m³ of lava erupted out of the lower east river zone in about two months. As it stabilized into channelized river flows, from the main vent known as fissure eight, massive rivers of lava such as this would run down the land 24 hours a day to the ocean where violent explosions would occur as it met the sea. This river was estimated at 30 feet deep in places and over 100 m wide in certain places as well."
