What happens when the volcano erupts?
When Mauna Loa erupts, it pours out lava fountains which feed lava flows. Typically, at the start of an eruption, a rift opens up with lava fountains occurring along its side.

This volcano is one of the most famous volcanoes. Therefore, it has many legends.

There is a story of Pele (volcano goddess0 who was driven from her home by her older sister, Na-maka-o-kaha'i. Pele marked her new home on the slopes of Mauna Loa to avoid the her sister.
It was said that Pele had a white dog that sent alerts to people telling them when the volcano was going to erupt. One day the dog went missing.
The Kalaipahoa (Poisonwood Gods), lived in the forest of Mauna Loa where they were to kill birds who touched the trees.
