Eruptive activity continues along Kilauea’s east rift zone, although, low cloud cover and gas rising from Pu‘u ‘O‘o crater prevented us from checking out the lava pond. The March 5th breakout still creeps along toward Pulama Pali, although its forward progress has somewhat slowed, as its distal tip remains approximately 1/2 mile from the crest. Still, numerous spots of activity were visible throughout the flow field above the pali, in both the eastern and western lobes. The Kamokuna ocean entry remains active as well, with its new delta continuing its growth. Several finger of lava could be seen entering the ocean through fleeting gaps in the rising steam plume.
