Ash column rises from the Overlook crater at the summit of Kīlauea Volcano. HVO's interpretation is that the explosion was triggered by a rockfall from the steep walls of Overlook crater. The photograph was taken at 8:29 a.m. HST from the Jaggar Museum overlook. The explosion was short-lived. Geologists examining the ash deposits on the rim of Halema‘uma‘u crater found fresh lava fragments hurled from the lava lake. This explosion was not caused by the interaction of the lava lake with the water table. When the ash cleared from the crater about an hour after the explosion, geologists were able to observe the lava lake surface, which is still above the water table. (image: HVO / USGS)

Kilauea (Hawai'i): (10 May) The summit lava lake inside Halema'uma'u crater continues to drop and the summit continues to deflate. As of yesterday evening, the lava lake's surface was 295 m (970 ft) below the floor of the crater, leaving a deep funnel. Lava is no longer visible on the webcam images.
At about 8:32 local time yesterday morning, a large rockfall from the steep crater walls into the retreating lake triggered an explosion that generated an ash column above the crater (image); the ash was blown toward the south-southwest. Rockfalls and explosions that produce ash columns are expected to continue.

...10 May:
The intermittent lower east rift zone eruption in the Leilani Estates continues. New fissures and areas of ground steaming have appeared, enlarging the affected area both down- (towards NE) and uprift (SW direction), showing that the intrusion of magma continues.
In its latest statement, HVO described that the "visible activity yesterday early afternoon was again focused on the northeast portion of the fissure area", which is now about 5 km long across the southern portion of Leilani Estates. "Fissure 15 broke ground across Poihiki Road, generating a pahoehoe flow about 20 m (66 ft) long. During an overflight of the area about 3 p.m. HST, geologists observed a new steaming area uprift (west) of Highway 130. During a second overflight at 4:30 p.m., the area was still steaming."
