No significant changes have occurred in the ongoing eruption both at the volcano's summit and on its eastern rift zone. Degassing, seismicity and deformation are at normal levels.
Summit lava lake: The lava lake in Halema'uma'u continues to be active, fluctuating in level around 35 m below the crater rim.
Puʻu ʻŌʻō (East Rift zone): A small new circular lava pond, approx. 20 m in diameter, has formed in mid January in the western end of the crater.
Lava flow activity: Lava continues to enter lava tubes from the Pu'u 'O'o vents and travels approx. 6 km northeast, to feed the slowly growing June 27th lava flow field. Scattered active margins of the lava field continue to eat at the forest. There is currently no threat to nearby communities.
