HONOLULU (KITV) - Hawaii Island hit hit with earthquakes again Wednesday.  Some residents are on alert after increased activity at Kilauea Volcano. 

A collapse at Kilauea's Pu'u O'o Crater floor is the cause of all the activity and scientists say it could lead to a new lava outbreak. 

They say it's not possible to say if, or where an outbreak may occur.  Residents, especially in Puna, are being asked to remain alert and watch for updates.

A magnitude 4.0 earthquake was recorded just offshore of Pu'u O'o around three Tuesday morning. 

Right now the Kalapana Lava Viewing Area is closed.
