Hawaiian-type activity continues.
Two active eruptive fissures continue to keep the lava flow active while the highest vent shows signs of inactivity.
The total length of the lava flow is about 16,5 km (from blue triangle/inactive vent) and 15 km length of the active flow (from purple triangles/active vents) and haven't reached the sea entry yet. According to the latest official data, the area covered by lava flows amounts to 7,6 km per square in total.
