The eruption goes on with little changes overall, but lava effusion rate has increased to approx. 12.4 cubic meters per second. The activity, however, has remained almost entirely effusive with no more lava fountains from the vents during the past 24 hours.

Most of the time, the erupted magma is going directly into lava tubes, but occasionally, surges of lava also erupt as flows from the rim of the main vent, producing surface flows nearby.
Tremor also increased to higher levels, reflecting the increase in effusion rate.
