Mauna Loa (Big Island, Hawai'i): (29 Feb) There have been around 80 recorded small-magnitude earthquakes beneath Mauna Loa over the past week with the strongest measuring magnitude 2.9 in the early morning hours of February 27.

There is continuous slow summit inflation which HVO say is “consistent with magma supply to the volcano's shallow storage system.” Gas concentrations ad fumarole temperatures remain stable.
