Eruptive volcanic activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, as Pu‘u ‘O‘o continues to effuse lava, feeding the Kamokuna ocean entry within Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. The lava pond in the crater was quite active, with bubbling and spattering occurring. A new breakout occurred about 4 or 5 days ago, roughly a mile east of the vent, progressing approximately a 1/2 mile from where it began. This surface flow is more than likely robbing volume from the other breakouts downstream, including the ocean entry itself. A few small lobes of activity were still visible on the pali, but the month old flow that crept to within a 1/4 mile of the emergency access road has stagnated, so only time will tell if its distal tip will reactivate with the current inflationary cycle. And, although the firehose’s volume is significantly less than 4 weeks ago, it is still generating huge littoral explosions as it pours directly into the sea.
