It only rises 4km above sea level, but from its own base under the ocean (and into the ocean floor), its summit is 17km above its base (approximately 56,000 feet).

It also erupts "regularly," with the latest eruption being in 1984.

Hawaii is actually made up of 5 volcanoes such as Mauna Loa and some others.

Property Law

How long can a buyer sue a previous owner when an inspection was performed and a closing occurred with the buyers 2 years ago?

It varies by state, but in general home warranties are only required for 1 year, meaning that the builder is not responsible for anything that happens after that. On the other hand, if there is evidence of fraud or other misrepresentation, the courts may allow legal recourse after that amount of time. FYI, "Sue" just means ask. Anyone can ask the court to award damages for just about anything. It's also possible to countersue for frivolous exploitation of the legal system, especially if the lawsuits are considered to be harrassment.

What was kilaueas most violent eruption?

There are several contenders for the most violent eruption of Kilauea, however they were all before recorded records on the island and have only been able to be extrapolated from the evidence left on the volcano. The one that is most understood of the explosive eruptions was the 1924. This explosive eruption from the summit caldera was most likely caused by a shallow interaction of super heated magma and ground water, as the caldera in that time was much deeper and the water table was a litle higher. This combination of a high water table and a deep caldera make Kiluaea prone to steam driven explosions from the summit. The Smithsonian Institute of Global Vlcanism has this eruption rated as a V.E.I. - 2. The eruptive column from the summit reached the altitude of the 1980 Mt. St. Helens eruption.

Another contender for the largest explosive eruption took place in or around 1790. This eruption was like the 1924 eruption driven by water and magma interaction, but seemd to be significantly more powerful. However without further evidence the true power and nature of the eruption will not be understood. Smithsonian Institute of Global Volcanism has the eruption rated at a V.E.I. - 4.

What type of eruption was Kilauea?

There are several different types of volcanic eruptions, such as Strombolian, Vulcanian, Vesuvian, Pelean, and Hawaiian. The eruption of Kilauea in Hawaii in 1959 was an "Hawaiian eruption", also known as a fissure eruption.

Hawaiian eruptions eject volcanic matter (ash, lava, etc) through a linear fissure or fracture, or through a central vent. Kilauea erupted through a central vent, and this style of eruption is usually characterised by fiery lava fountains that extend hundreds of feet into the air.
