#Didyouknow there are five volcanoes on Hawai‘i Island? Three are active and two of them, Mauna Loa and Kīlauea, make up Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park.
Mauna Loa (long mountain) is a shield volcano with gradual slopes. It stands at 13,677 feet above sea level. It last erupted during a three-week stretch from March 24-April 15, 1984. Its eruptions produce lava at a much higher rate than other Hawaiian volcanoes, which results in faster-moving, longer-traveling lava flows.
