Pele makes appearance atop Mokuaweoweo, 1914.

FIRES BURN ABOVE MOKUAWEOWEO

On the evening of Wednesday the burning of lava above the crater of Mokuaweoweo was clearly known. At the arrival of the steamship Mauna Kea in the port of Awapaakai on Maui, on the Wednesday eve, the glow of fire atop Mauna Loa was witnessed by her passengers, and the fires above the Mountain was soon learned. These past days, word of the very intense fires above Mauna Loa has arrived, yet it did not pour over the side of the Mountain. However it was clear to the folks of Kawaihae and North and South Kona the power of the spouting of the fires above, and in the estimation of some people, the strength of the lava shooting above the crater was perhaps several hundred feet. The skies on the Kona side was illuminated, and it is being watched for where the lava will erupt from the mountain as is usual when eruptions occur atop Mokuaweoweo. Some people think that the strongest eruption will occur on the Kona side of the crater, and some predict that the flow will indeed happen on the Kona side. But the return of the person watching for the lava flow of Kilauea is awaited for being that he is now atop Mauna Loa.
