The 2018 Kilauea eruption, which began on May 3 and lasted 107 days, was one of the longest eruptions in recent history in the lower Puna district of Hawaii. Over 700 homes were destroyed, and there was additional damage to the USGS Hawaiian Volcanoes Observatory as well as to critical infrastructure within the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Many federal, state, and local agencies and organizations supported response to this historic event. In this seminar, the speakers will describe how the USGS used social media to deliver nearly 24/7 volcano hazards information and build trust during the crisis. The speakers will then describe how the unique approach of DOI ’s Strategic Sciences Group (SSG) provided insights to help identify potential social, environmental, and economic consequences of the eruption.
