Mount Kilauea continued to spew lava after erupting last month and has formed a lava lake in its crater. 

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) said that the lava has accumulated at the crater 620 feet (189 meters) deep.

The USGS Volcano Alert level for Kilauea is currently at WATCH which means it is exhibiting heightened or escalating unrest with increased potential of eruption.

The HVO explained that the lava lake would need to rise about 262 feet (80 meters) before it could be seen by the public from Kilauea Overlook in Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.
