Kilauea volcano update: Continuing lava hose flowing into sea, active lava lake

Kilauea's summit lava lake
No significant changes have occurred over the past weeks. Kīlauea volcano continues to erupt from at its summit (active lava lake in Halema'uma'u) and from the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on the East Rift Zone. From the latter, the s-called 61g lava flow travels southeast, mostly through a lava tube, which enters the ocean in form of a spectacular fire hose at Kamokuna.
Small surface breakouts from this lava flow are also present above and on the pali as well as half-way between the coast and the base of the pali when visited by our ongoing Kilauea Volcano Special tour.
A short period of deflation (which has caused a temporary drop of the lava lake to be out of view from Jagger lookout) ended yesterday and the lava lake level rose again to about 23.5 m (77 ft) below the Overlook crater rim when measured this morning.
Seismic activity is at low levels and no other parameters suggest any unusual activity.

Tuesday, Oct 18, 2016
No significant changes have occurred at the volcano recently. The level of the summit lava lake rises and falls more or less along with the inflation-deflation cycles. On Saturday (15 Oct), the lava lake overflowed twice onto the Halema'uma'u crater floor before dropping again. ... [meer...]
