Myth 7: "Kilauea volcano will impact your vacation"
Kilauea is a volcano on the Big Island of Hawai‘i. A particularly large eruption in 2018 destroyed homes and forced evacuations on the southeast coast, but after months of inactivity, the U.S. Geological Survey declared that eruption over at the end of 2018.
In September 2021, the volcano resumed erupting, as it had continuously from 1983 until the end of 2018, but no inhabited areas are currently threatened. The USGS closely monitors Kilauea and provides regular updates on its status. It could erupt destructively again, but it's unlikely that would affect most tourist areas on the Big Island, which are dozens of miles away. (Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park is an important exception.)
It also wouldn't affect destinations on other islands; Honolulu, for example, is more than 200 miles away across a vast stretch of ocean.
