Lava flows and fissures map as of 10:00 a.m. HST, June 5, 2018. Given the dynamic nature of Kīlauea's lower East Rift Zone eruption, with changing vent locations, fissures starting and stopping, and varying rates of lava effusion, map details shown here are accurate as of the date/time noted. Shaded purple areas indicate lava flows erupted in 1840, 1955, 1960, and 2014-2015. (HVO/USGS)

Kilauea (Hawai'i): In the Lower East Rift Zone lava effusion persists from fissure 8 which continues to feed a channel transporting lava eastward to the ocean entry in the Kapoho Bay area. HVO's Tuesday 5 June mid-day overflight showed that this flow has completely filled Kapoho Bay and formed a lava delta extending about 1.3 kilometre (0.8 miles) out from the former coastline. Meanwhile the outbreak of this flow that started to wrap around the western side of Kapoho cinder cone has completely encircled it, re-joined the wide Kapoho Bay lava flow channel but travelled south of it where it now creates a second ocean entry in the Vacationland tidepools area. The destruction of the Kapoho Bay and Vacationland neighbourhoods and beautiful recreational areas is immense as almost all of it got covered by the fissure 8 lava flow over the past 2 days. Whatever remains is still under threat as the wide fissure 8 lava flow is also still spreading sideways

Fuego (Guatemala): Another pyroclastic flow descended on the SE flank yesterday at 14:10 local time (5 June), following the same path (through the Las Lajas and El Jute drainages) as the catastrophic one on Sunday that claimed many lives.
The associated ash plume rose to approx. 6 km altitude but quickly dissipated. No particular seismic precursor was noted prior to the new event, which likely was not caused so much by eruption of new lava but more likely mostly by a slide of accumulated deposits and/or collapse of the deep ravine's walls in the upper volcano's cone left by the flow on Sunday.
Similar avalanches can probably be expected to occur in the near future as well and the areas near the valleys draining from the volcano, especially on its SE side should be avoided in a wide corridor.
