Kilauea, Hawai : Eruptions continue at the summit of Kilauea Volcano.

Activity Summary:
Eruptions continue at the summit of Kilauea Volcano and its East Rift Zone. Scattered surface flows persist in the ‘June 27th’ flow field; all are within 6.1 km (4 mi) of Pu’u ‘O’o and do not threaten nearby communities. Seismicity and deformation rates are within normal levels throughout the volcano.

Summit Observations:
Kilauea Volcano continues to host a lava lake at its summit; with a current height of 50 m (165 ft) below the rim of the Overlook crater. Minor inflationary tilt continued throughout yesterday, consistent with the inflation segment of a DI event. Seismicity is at normal, background rates. Episodes of tremor are associated with periods of spattering within the Overlook vent. Summit sulfur dioxide emission rates averaged around 4,000 metric tons/day for the past week.

Pu’u ‘O’o Observations:
Thermal webcam images show no significant change in Pu’u ‘O’o crater; material erupted last week is still warm, but cooling. Gentle deflationary tilt continued throughout the past day. Seismic activity remains quiet. The sulfur dioxide emission rate from all East Rift Zone vents was about 460 metric tons/day when measurements were last possible on November 5, 2015.

June 27th Lava Flow Observations:
Scattered breakouts continue to be visible in the ‘June 27th’ flow field. Surface flows are northeast of Pu’u ‘O’o and within 6.1 km (4 mi) of the vent. There is no lava flow threat to nearby communities.
