The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) reported that over the past few days, the western fissure vent within Halema‘uma‘u has escalated from weak spattering to continuous fountaining supplying lava to an open channel that was pouring into the lava lake. A spatter cone has built around both the fountaining vent and its turbulent outflow channel down to the lava lake.
The current lava lake depth is about 196 m (643 ft) with the floating islands inside.
Gas emissions and seismicity remain elevated.
