The bizarre finding, which sends compasses into an uncontrollable spin
More bull#. See: Curie point.
According to geologists the molten rock below the Mount Kilauea caldera contains vast amounts of iron and is effectively a sea of floating magnets.

More facts, less speculation please.
Posters that source their statements and provide links or documentation, I appreciate you. Those arguing two sides of a fruitless basket, please seek evidence and share it with us.
Volcano's may normally switch the polarity of their magma and this could be part of the mechanism that shows how it gets ejected in such volume (IDK just guessing).

Can you explain what you mean by "crater collapses?"
Because if it did so it would be extraordinary. Especially if it was "spinning uncontrollably" as claimed in that stupid article in your OP.
Why do you care one way or another if the compass was moving while flying over the eruption?
I saw it. I've explained the phenomenon several times, in several threads, in a futile (apparently) effort to dispense the doom mongering.
Why would you not see the part about the Volcano collapsing and sealing ?
