May 11, 2018 – Due to the ongoing seismic activity and the anticipated explosions caused by large rock falls, the interaction of ground water and lava, and the possibility of an ensuing ash fall event, all areas of Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park are closed, with the exception of the portion of Highway 11 that runs through the park and the Kahuku Unit.

Most of remains closed since Friday, May 11 due to ongoing seismic activity and summit deflation.
