Map of the current lava flows on Kilauea (HVO daily update)
The eruption continued with no significant changes over the past weeks. The level of lava inside the Halema'uma'u crater rises and falls with the inflation-deflation cycles, but overall continues to rise very slowly.
The two lava flow fields fed from Pu'u 'O'o remained active. The Kahauale`a 2 lava continued burning forest to the north of the rift axis. Southeast of Pu`u `O`o, the Peace Day flow had minor active breakouts near the base of the pali and mid-way across the coastal plain.
Most of the Peace Day flow remained within its lava tube until reaching the ocean on both the east and west sides of the Hawai`i Volcanoes National Park boundary.
