Mauna Loa , Hawai : continue  deformation related to inflation of a magma reservoir beneath the summit .

Activity Summary:
Mauna Loa is not erupting. There have been no significant changes in seismicity recorded beneath Mauna Loa during the past week. Seismicity remains elevated above the long-term background level, as shallow earthquakes continue to occur mostly beneath Mauna Loa’s upper Southwest Rift Zone at depths of less than 5 km (3 mi). Global Positioning System (GPS) measurements show continued deformation related to inflation of a magma reservoir beneath the summit and upper Southwest Rift Zone, with inflation recently occurring mainly in the southwestern part of the magma storage complex.
