How many active Volcanoes? : LUSENET : About Hawaii : One Thread

I was wondering how many total volcanoes there are in Hawaii. Out of them, how many are considered active? When was the last eruption?

Response to Volcano

All the islands were made from volcanoes with most extinct. If you went from Niihau to Hawaii, that would be from youngest to oldest. The volcanoes on Maui are dormant and some of the vocanoes on Hawaii are dormant. I know of two that are active. Loihi on the ocean floor is the start of a new island and Kilauea on Hawaii.
