Kilauea, Hawaï: The lava lake level  is roughly 70 m (230 ft) below the Overlook crater rim.

Activity Summary:
Eruptions continue at Kilauea Volcano’s summit and in its east rift zone at Pu’u ‘O’o. Summit deflationary tilt continues this morning. The lava lake level is roughly 70 m (230 ft) below the Overlook crater rim. Scattered breakouts remain active northeast of Pu’u ‘O’o, within about 7 km (4 miles) of the vent. There is no lava flow threat to nearby communities.

Summit Observations:
The deflationary tilt at Kilauea’s summit that began yesterday morning continues. The lava lake level, after rising several meters has dropped during the past day and is roughly 70 m (230 ft) below the Overlook crater rim. During the past day, intermittently high tremor and associated spattering activity at the lake’s surface has been occurring. Summit sulfur dioxide emission rates averaged 3,400 metric tons per day for the past week.

Pu’u ‘O’o Observations:
Web cam images this morning show no significant change in eruptive activity within the crater. Tilt measured at Pu’u ‘O’o, switched from inflationary to gentle deflationary Saturday night. No significant changes in seismicity have occurred. The sulfur dioxide emission rate from all East Rift Zone vents was about 150 metric tons per day when last measured on October 21, 2015.

June 27th Lava Flow Observations:
This morning, webcam images show that scattered breakouts remain active between about 2.2 and 6.4 km (1.4 and 4 mi) northeast of Pu’u ‘O’o There is no lava flow threat to nearby communities.
