At approximately 6:15 a.m. today (April 26) a new overflow began on Halema‘uma‘u crater floor. The lava lake overflow continued until about 10:30 a.m. and covered about 36 hectares (90 acres) of the crater floor with lava (approximately 2/3). This is the largest overflow since the summit eruption began in 2008. This photo is looking south, and the gas plume is being produced by the lava lake in the southeast crater floor (upper left). (image: HVO / USGS)
A series of large lava lake overflows occurred during 25-26 April, covering most of the crater flows of Halema'uma'u crater with fresh lava flows.
This thermal image (looking south) shows the active overflows from the lava lake (upper left) onto the Halema‘uma‘u crater floor. View is toward the south. (image: HVO / USGS)
