Very Voggy Volcano Hawaii June 15, 2018 – Light variable winds over East Hawaii today once again brought horrible vog over most of the flow field this morning… even Hilo suffered the ill effects. Although difficult to access, Fissure 8 fountains were lower today, but she continues to pump amazing amounts of lava into the system, feeding enormous rivers that transport the molten rock to the Pacific Ocean in Kapoho. Eight is really the only active vent of Kilauea’s Leilani Estates eruption, which is now in its seventh week. The other two dozen fissures are smoking, steaming and glowing, but not erupting… while Fissure 8, almost dead center in the middle of the beleaguered subdivision, continues to send 6-9 million cubic yards of lava a day flowing toward the Pacific Ocean. Pele is now creating new land off the Eastern coast of the Big Island.
