Kilauea volcano (Hawaii), eruption update: lava lake active again

Very bad weather continues to trouble the Hawaiian Islands and makes observation of Kilauea's activity difficult.
During visits to active areas, we found the sea entry at the East Lae`apuki lava delta moderately active with two main entry points. In the coastal flat, few breakouts are active at the eastern margin of the active PKK flow in the area about 1 km east of the main tube (its trace being visible from distance by the dense steam and bluish gas escaping from its roof). The tube itself has an extremely thin crust that makes the area around it very dangerous, and it is currently closed off due to that reason.
At Pu'u O'o, the lava lake inside the East Pond vent is very active, with impressive waves on its surface and yellow fountains at its southern margin that resemble a hellish cauldron of boiling magma. The lake seems to be fed by two vents at the longer extremes of the crater. It is about 25x15m large and at about 15 meters depth below the rim. Observation is not possible but from its rim, which is highly unstable and in most parts periliously overhanging or showing signs of very recent or imminent collapses. -->More on Kilauea
