Kilauea continues to erupt from Pu‘u ‘O‘o, the vent on its east rift zone, sending molten lava downslope, via a network of tubes to the Kamokuna ocean entry. This morning, a low bank of clouds hung over Pu‘u ‘O‘o, and while it prevented us from getting any clear images, a bit of glow was faintly visible, indicating that the lava pond was still there. The most notable change on the flow field was a new breakout approximately 1/2 mile upslope of the most recent (2 weeks ago) that had sent several rivers flowing over Pulama Pali. This new one is at least 1/4 mile long and is quite active, flowing on east side of the main tube at the present time. Meanwhile, at the base of the pali, very little fresh activity was observed, just a couple residual nosebleed breakouts. The 3 week old lobe is still advancing across the coastal plain, its distal tip approximately 1/4 mile mauka of the emergency access road. (still hoping for a new entry point!) And lastly, the firehose continues to rage on, albeit at a lower volume than before, but still creating impressive littoral explosions. The cliffside remains extremely unstable and continues to slowly erode away, as the indentation in the coastline where the lava effuses from is becoming more pronounced. For those visitors on the ground, please heed all safety warnings put out by the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park and the USGS!
