Eruptive activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone. Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s lava pond was very active with much bubbling and spattering, and cracking and swallowing of its crusted surface. The two week old breakout, roughly a mile from the vent, is still active with numerous little breakouts spread out over its widening flow field. While the leading edge has advanced about a mile, it’s still quite a distance from Pulama Pali. All of the other surface flows have stagnated, with the exception of one small lobe in the middle of the coastal plain. With the summit once again in deflationary mode, it looks like that surface activity may come to halt soon. The Kamokuna ocean entry is still discharging lava directly into the sea via the firehose, and creating consistently large littoral explosions.
