HCCD Update Hawaii Kilauea Volcano (August 11,2018)

Rates : 6

HCCD Update Hawaii Kilauea Volcano (August 11,2018) The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that eruptive activity remains at reduced levels at Kilauea Summit and the lower east rift zone. Seismic activity at the summit is low with few earthquakes. A small lava pond remains in the Fissure 8 cone. Observations yesterday show the pond to be largely crusted over with some areas glowing. Fissure 8 along with other Fissures continue to release gas. Lava is oozing at several points along the Kapoho Bay and Ahalanui coastline creating a laze plume. Although the lull in activity continues, it is common for eruptions to go through periods of diminished output, or to pause completely, only to reactivate days or weeks later, or longer. Activity could occur at any time, and residents should remain informed and heed Hawaii County Civil Defense messages and warnings. Also, in addition to our aerial videos, we will be posting Daily Updates from USGS and Hawaii Civil Defense as they happen to keep you posted on the latest developments.
