HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A sizable rockfall beneath the closed Jaggar Museum at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park was spotted Wednesday morning.

Park officials said the rockfall could be viewed from across across the caldera at Volcano House.

The rockfall comes as the summit of Kilauea continues to settle following collapse events and earthquakes that rocked the park last year amid a months-long eruption.
