Volcanoes Today, 22 Apr 2014: Etna, Kilauea
Tuesday Apr 22, 2014 12:00 PM |Etna (Sicily, Italy): Occasional weak explosions continue at the New SE crater: two very small events were observed today at 03:45 and 04:05 (local time).
Kilauea (Hawai'i): (21 Apr) Here on Kilauea over the past week we have seen the lava lake at the summit rise and drop several times! This is due to the several DI tilt events that have occured. Gas emissions continued to be elevated at the summit as well. On the East Rift Zone, near Pu'u 'O'o we have seen no major changes - Spatter cones on the floor of Pu'u 'O'o crater displayed strong glow and the lava level of the circulating lava pond was elevated within the collapsed northeast spatter cone. USGS Webcams recorded continued activity from the small tube breakout that started Saturday morning and at the flow front.
