As anxious residents scour the internet for the latest information on the Kilauea eruptions, authorities have also been dealing with a slew of misconceptions and rumors circulating on social media.
The volcano's 4,090 ft (1,250 metre) summit has collapsed to form a caldera, a broad shallow depression almost 3 miles long and 2 miles wide with an area of more than 4 square miles. And right now, it's all a lava lake. On Wednesday, the volcano belched a plume that reached about 7,000 feet (2,133 metres), scientists said.

Another explosion was reported late Tuesday from the summit, sending ash 9,000 feet into the air. The larger explosions produce ash that is blown downwind, and trace amounts have fallen in nearby communities.
