 Pu`ulena Crater - John Seach
Lower East Rift Zone - Kilauea Volcano

Pu`ulena Crater is located 100 m east of Leilani Estates subdivision.
It is composed of three pit craters and is 700 m long, 25 m wide, and about 100 m deep.
The collapse was caused by phreatic explosions 450 to 700 years ago.
Occasionally steam can be seen emitting from the crater.
