    We’ve learned a lot about Kilauea’s explosive history in the past 15 years. Once thought to be rare, explosive eruptions from the volcano’s summit are instead frequent and clustered into periods lasting several centuries. For example, between 1500 and the late 1700s, Kilauea’s eruptions were almost always explosive. We can be thankful that Kilauea is in a quiet period now, but we shouldn’t have an ostrich mentality about the future. If it happened yesterday, it can happen tomorrow.
