Kilauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and from its East Rift Zone. Weak lava flow activity continued within Pu’u’O’o crater. Scattered surface flows remain active on the ‘June 27th’ flow field within about 6.0 km (4 mi) of Pu’u’O’o and do not currently threaten any nearby communities. Seismicity and deformation are within normal levels throughout the volcano.
Kilauea Volcano continues to host a circulating lava lake at its summit which remained about 30 m (98 ft) below the rim of the Overlook crater. Spatter from the surface of the lava lake was intermittently visible from a webcam on HVO’s roof when the weather was clear. No significant ground tilt was recorded over the past day. Rates of seismicity continue at normal levels, with periods of increased tremor associated with spattering within the Overlook vent. The sulfur dioxide emission rate varied between 800 and 7,000 metric tons/day during the past week.
Small lava flows from the south vents within Pu’u’O’o crater continued to ooze intermittently. No significant ground tilt was recorded on the north flank of Pu’u’O’o cone. Seismic activity remained at background rates. The sulfur dioxide emission rate from all East Rift Zone vents was about 300 metric tons/day when it was last measured on February 16, 2016.
June 27th Lava Flow Observations:
Webcam views show that scattered surface flow activity continued on the ‘June 27th’ flow field. All active flows are within about 6 km (4 mi) northeast of Pu’u’O’o and do not currently threaten any nearby communities.
