Eruptive activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, as Pu‘u ‘O‘o continues to dispense lava via flow 61G, feeding the Kamokuna ocean entry and the March 5th breakout. The lava pond was quite active while we hovered above, but the wind blew a pretty thick plume of gases directly over it, so pilot, Robert Mitchell, did his best in getting us the best possible vantage point over the north rim. Meanwhile, the March 5th breakout remains quite active, and while it’s still spread out over a wide area, its leading edge has begun flowing over steeper grade, and may draw more volume with it as it approaches Pulama Pali. The Kamokuna ocean entry continues to generate a robust steam plume, as lava enters the Pacific Ocean, building out a new delta. Stress fractures are increasing in width, and the probability of a bench collapse continue to increase as the delta grows.
