Mauna Loa is also one of the most active volcanoes on earth, erupting 33 times since 1843. Amazingly, it hasn't erupted since 1984, and fortunately, scientists don't expect it to erupt anytime soon. At Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Loa is continuously monitored for long periods of seismic activity that foretell a potential eruption. So far, the sleeping giant is sleeping soundly. If breakout flows do occur, scientists predict that the Ocean View area in Ka‘u might be vulnerable.
