HVO reported that lava continued to effuse from a vent in the lower W wall of Kilauea's Halema`uma`u Crater during 14-22 June, entering the lava lake and flowing onto the crater floor. The surface of the lava lake was continuously active all week, and nearly continuous breakouts occurred along the margins. The lake level was variable in response to cycles of inflation and deflation.
By 17 June the total volume of erupted lava was an estimated 93 million cubic meters, and the lake which had risen a total of 120 m since 29 September 2021.The Aviation Color Code and the Volcano Alert Level remained at Orange and Watch, respectively.

Summit instruments detected a deflation starting around the midnight of 18 June with ground subsidence by approx. 2.5 microradians. The lava lake level has dropped by about 3 meters (10 ft) since the ground deformation started. This is most likely reflects reverts of magma batch movements under the surface leading to the lava lake sinking. ... Read all
