Map of Kilauea's new lava flow headed SE (map: HVO)
: The new active lava flow headed to the southeast from Puʻu ʻŌʻō continues to advance and spread laterally. On 28 July it had reached a length of 6.9 km (4.3 mi) from the vent and reached the Pulama pali in the western area of the abandoned Royal Gardens subdivision.
Most likely, it will reach the coastal plain today or in the next days, but then slow down and widen, reducing its advance towards the ocean.
At the summit caldera, a phase of deflation is in progress. The level of the Halema'uma'u lava lake dropped by about 10 m (33 ft) during 27-28 June.
Etna (Sicily, Italy)
: There has been no particular surface activity at the volcano since the violent summit eruptions in late May, but the volcanic tremor amplitude has been gradually rising over the past days. ... read all
: The elevated activity from the Caliente lava dome continues to produce intermittent strong vulcanian eruptions every few days or so: yesterday afternoon at 16:16 local time, a powerful explosion produced an ash column that rose to 5 km altitude and generated pyroclastic flows on the SW and SE side of the lava dome. ... read all
: The effusive and mildly explosive eruption of the volcano continues with no significant changes. Regular strombolian explosions in the summit crater often produce small puffs of steam and ash that can be seen drifting from the volcano. ... read all
: The eruption of the volcano continues with little changes during the past weeks - there are now two active lava flows on the SE flank, both about 2 km long from the summit crater. ... read all
: The so-called "June 27th" lava flow field ceased to be active and the new flow field is now headed towards the ocean. ... read all
