at its summit and from its East Rift Zone. There is no significant change in tilt occurring at the summit of Kilauea this morning. The East Rift Zone lava flow is active northeast of Pu’u’O’o, and breakouts remain within about 7 km (4 mi) of the vent. The flow does not currently pose a threat to communities. Low levels of seismic activity continue across the volcano. At the summit the lava lake is still active.
Yesterday’s inflationary tilt slowed through yesterday evening and little change in tilt has occurred since around midnight. The summit lava lake remains active, and seismic tremor continues with episodic bursts associated with spattering within the Overlook vent. This morning, the depth to the surface of the lava within the overlook vent is approximately 50 m (165 ft) below the floor of Halema’uma’u. Seismicity remains at low levels. Summit sulfur dioxide emission rates averaged around 4,000 metric tons/day for the past week.
Webcam views ofPu’u’O’o during the past day showed no changes in the persistent incandescent crater vents. No significant net change in tilt has occurred over the past day. Seismic activity remains low. 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:
Webcam views overnight show continued activity on the flow field. The June 27th lava flow is active, with surface flows scattered northeast of Pu’u’O’o. All active flows are between around 1.9 and 7 km (1 and 4 mi) of Pu’u’O’o. There is no lava flow threat to nearby communities.
