Kilauea (Hawai'i): Eruption of lava and gas continues at a low level along Kīlauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone within the Leilani Estates subdivision. USGS reports that on Monday 7 May 2 new fissures opened up and temporarily erupted lava, making a total of 12 fissure segments that broke ground and were active since the start of the eruption in the Leilani Estates. The longest lava flow thereby advanced about 0.9 km (0.6 miles) northward from fissure 8 before stopping. Large cracks have now also appeared on Highway 130 west of the eruption site and they continue to widen (up to 7 – 8 cm by now) and expel volcanic gasses and steam. Rates of seismicity and deformation changed little throughout the day and gas emissions likely remain elevated in the vicinity of fissures.
