Kilauea Volcano Lava Flow—View from the Ocean
Lee D Jacobs, MD

This picture was taken from an offshore cruise ship in the Pacific Ocean in July 2018. The Kilauea Volcano is located on the southeastern part of the island of Hawaii (the Big Island). The ship could only stay in the area a short period of time because of the extremely hot water from the volcano.

Dr Jacobs is the President and Chief Executive Officer of Bethesda Referral and Teaching Hospital in Haiti and the Associate Editor-in-Chief of The Permanente Journal.
