This hearing will examine the current state of volcanic hazards in the United States and the United States Geological Survey (USGS) Volcano Hazards Program that is designed to address these hazards, alert communities to pending eruptions, and mitigate devastating impacts to communities within the hazard zones. This hearing is especially timely in light of the current encroachment of an active lava flow into a residential neighborhood in Hawaii.
