Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i), eruption update: active lava visible in 4 locations
Thursday Jan 01, 1970 00:00 AM |
It's an exciting time on Kilauea, with high magma pressure forcing lava to the surface in four locations: the Overlook Vent in Halema`uma`u (within 90m of lowest rim, causing intense night-time glow visible from a distance), within Pu`u `O`o crater, from the TEB vent and satellitic ponds, and at the flow-front in Kalapana, where active lava is typically present and legally accessible to our clients. This excess pressure has also caused many earthquakes in the upper east rift zone, the rising of the Halema`uma`u lava lake, and a collapse of the pyroducts carrying lava to the ocean, where the sea entry has ceased for now. Join us to learn more about the ongoing eruption of Kilauea!

Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i) activity update: Longest non-eruptive period since 1982; probable end of 1983-2018 eruption
Saturday, Nov 10, 2018
It has now been 66 days since lava was last at the surface at Kilauea. That is the longest gap since the start of the eruption in 1983- there were 65 days between Episode 2 and 3- and the longest since the 4 months between the two 1982 eruptions. And with no signs of imminent renewal, it seems very likely that the current gap will reach the 90 day mark on December 5- which means the eruptive period that started in 1983 has come to end. When eruptive activity does eventually return, it will be an entirely new eruption. [mehr]

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has lowered the Aviation Color Code and Alert Level for Kilauea to YELLOW/ADVISORY, stating that the likelihood of renewed eruptive activity in the near-future is unlikely. [mehr]

As the eruption of lava from Fissure 8 continues with little changes, but rather an increase as observed last evening, lateral outbreaks from the lower parts of the lava channel have been feeding a broad flow front that is now advancing southwest and threatens to inundate the Pohoiki boat ramp in Isaac Hale Park.
