The effusive eruption at the volcano continues.
A slightly increasing inflationary trend continues at the Kilauea's summit. The previous, relatively flat deflation switched to the current uplift in the early morning of the July of 15. A short-lived ground decline has been recorded at 07:30 local time yesterday, but reverted back again into rising values.
The lava level of the active lake surface remained at the level of the bounding levees. Two lava ooze-outs have been formed at midnight and 02:00 local time tonight.
Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emissions reached to a 1700 tonnes/day on 18 July.
