Eruptive activity persists on Kilauea’s east rift zone, as the week old makai breakout on Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s northeast flank continues to discharge lava. No efficient tube system has been established yet, so direction continues to be somewhat erratic, but generally eastward, following the slope of the area. The mauka breakout also continues to be active, but with sporadic breakouts on the flank and on the flow field bordering the adjacent forest. Appears that most of the volume may be entering existing tubes feeding the area the northeast prior to these breakouts occurring.
MAHALO NUI LOA to pilot Ryan Moeller, Calvin Dorn, and Paradise Helicopters for the EXCELLENT charter service!
