Underwater lava flow from the Kilauea volcano created a new "island," which was estimated to be just a few meters offshore, and perhaps 6-9 meters (20-30 ft) in diameter. Scientists said it's a common occurence called a tumulus. They said it could continue to grow and connect to the coast, or waves could cause it to fall apart. The yet-to-be-named chunk of land is seen here on July 13, 2018.
