For 5 days in a row, explosions at Kilauea summit had force of magnitude 5.3 earthquake
(CNN) - For the fifth day in a row, an explosion at the Kilauea summit erupted with a force equivalent to a magnitude 5.3 earthquake.
Monday's event happened at 5:03 p.m. local time, with a plume that reached less than 2,000 feet. It didn't cause a tsunami threat, but was the latest in a series of what's been called explosion collapse events by the US Geological Survey.
