Kīlauea Lower East Rift Zone Fissures and Flows Map as of 23 May 2018, 2:20 p.m. Shaded purple areas indicate lava flows erupted in 1840, 1955, 1960, and 2014-2015. (HVO/USGS)
24 May 2018 updated fissures and lava flow map and thermal image of the ongoing eruption of Kilauea in the East Rift Zone (HVO/USGS)
This thermal map shows the fissure system and lava flows as of 12:15 pm on Thursday, May 24. Two channelized lava flows are reaching the ocean. In addition, a new lava flow is active in Leilani Estates subdivision, near Fissure 7. The black and white area is the extent of the thermal map. Temperature in the thermal image is displayed as gray-scale values, with the brightest pixels indicating the hottest areas. (HVO/USGS)

Blue burning flames of methane gas was observed in the cracks on Kahukai Street close to the active fissure, during the night from 22 to 23 May 2018. When lava buries plants and shrubs, methane gas is produced as a byproduct of burning vegetation. (HVO/USGS)
The impressive eruption that started at Kilauea volcano, Hawaii, since early May is still going on! During the night from 22 to 23 May, the lower East Rift Zone eruption site produced most robust volcanic activity from the middle portion of the fissure system, with the most active fissures have been 22,19, 6, 5, and 23. The ocean entry remained very active and sometimes created small explosions. A very interesting observation was that of methane gas burning in blue flames in the cracks of Kahukai Street, on May 22, around 11:30 PM. When hot lava buries plants and shrubs, methane gas is produced as a byproduct of burning vegetation. This methane gas can seep into subsurface voids and explode when heated or emerge from cracks in the ground several feet away. When ignited, the methane produces a blue flame. ...more [read all]
