Mauna Loa (Big Island, Hawai'i): (4 Apr) Over the past week, HVO recorded 47 small-magnitude earthquakes on the Mauna Loa's summit and upper-elevation flanks. Most of these earthquakes occurred at shallow depths of less than 8 kilometers (~5 miles) below ground level, with the largest measuring magnitude 2.1 on the volcano's northwest flank. There is continued slow summit inflation, which HVO state it consistent with magma supply to the volcano's shallow storage system. Gas concentrations and fumarole temperatures remain stable.

Kilauea (Hawai'i): (4 Apr) The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory have released the monthly update of activity at Kilauea volcano over the month of March.
There were variable rates of seismicity over March, however, the rates were within a range that has been observed over the past year. Sulfur dioxide emission rates at the summit are low and are below detection limits at Puʻu ʻŌʻō and the lower East Rift Zone. As of March 19th, the dimensions of the water pond at the bottom of Halema'uma'u are approximately 107 meters (~351 feet) by 211 meters (~692 feet). This is a growth of 7 meters (22 feet) by 11 meters (36 feet) since the last update (March 6th) As of April 1st, the current depth is approximately 32 meters (105 feet). The pond has therefore deepened by 4 meters (13 feet)
