Some of the aerial video coming out from yesterday. Look at those steam clouds.

The crater has gone from dry and clear yesterday to a steam explosion currently. Check it out on what must be the LQ stream the govt. could find.

Edit: unless I'm mistaken, there is now steam appearing closer to the cam on the caldera edge?

^^^Nice live steam cam...
Fissure 8 is still going strong in the USGS cam....they did note the cinder cone was 110 feet in height; for reference.

They said the height had lowered but when I listened in on a previous 11 am call USGS said the height of the fountain was more due to the amount of gas in the lava not so much any pressurization. I think people are equating amount of lava issuing with the ht. of the fountain which doesnt seem true by those remarks.

I also see in the daily updates that no other fissures are active, but I routinely see red glows on the cams and its pretty obvious there's steam coming from the westernmost fissures.

No more steam now its ash on the live cam.

Check this out its the Mobile Cam 3 at Puu Oo and I think thats the laze plume at Kapoho?

#LeilaniEstatesEruption #KilaueaVolcano LATEST (June 6 at 11:50 AM): For those who missed it, this is our LIVE report from Kapoho Bay with Ikaika Marzo earlier this morning.

I like that Mileka is always at pains to state she and her crew are abiding by the restrictions and not going off on their own to get the shot.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Wednesday, June 6, 2018, 2:34 PM HST (Thursday, June 7, 2018, 00:34 UTC)

Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone

Vigorous eruption of lava continues from the lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) fissure system in the area of Leilani Estates.

This morning, lava fountaining at Fissure 8 continued to reach heights of 150-180 feet, feeding a stable channel to the east to the ocean entry in the Kapoho Bay area. Lava is entering the ocean in the Vacationland subdivision. Vacationland has been completely covered by lava, and overnight the flow expanded north by 100 m within Kapoho Beach Lots. The lava delta that formed at Kapoho Bay extended slightly overnight.

The northern lobe of the Fissure 8 flow shows no signs of activity this morning, and there is only wispy smoke at the flow front. No other fissures are active.

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

Earthquake activity is increasing after Tuesday morning's small explosion, with ten M3+ earthquakes since 5 am in the Kīlauea summit area. This pattern suggests that more felt earthquakes and a small explosion are likely within the next few hours. Monitoring data indicate that subsidence at the summit and inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halema`uma`u continues.


There were some nice homes in Kapoho Bay.

That's a great map - I was wondering how much the coastline had changed. It's also remarkable how closely the fissures align with the older cinder cone features in that area.

You can access the map thru the County of HI page. The map link is on the left sidebar.
http://www.hawaiicounty.gov/active-alerts

I added Parcels to show the development and then made the lines more transparent to show where it was going to imperil developed areas. To be honest I never thought the flow would get all the way over to Kapoho.

Speaking of USGS just uploaded a 3 minute compilation of the lava in the LERZ. The extent is huge.
(USGS seems to have suddenly discovered YouTube)

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Thursday, June 7, 2018, 8:50 AM HST (Thursday, June 7, 2018, 18:50 UTC)

Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone

Vigorous eruption of lava continues from the lower East Rift Zone (LERZ) fissure system in the area of Leilani Estates.

Overnight, lava fountaining at Fissure 8 fluctuated, reaching heights of 230 feet. This activity is feeding a lava channel flowing east to the Kapoho Bay area. Observations by HVO geologists and the University of Hawaii at Hilo UAS crew during the night indicated that the northern lobe of the Fissure 8 flow is not receiving significant lava, and the lobe that was active on the west side of the Four Corners cinder pit is inactive. The morning overflight confirmed these observations and revealed minor overflows from the channel. Lava is entering the ocean along a broad front in the general area of Kapoho Bay and Vacationland. Lava also continues to creep north through what remains of Kapoho Beach Lots.

No other fissures are active.

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

Seismic activity at the summit was subdued overnight -- a natural consequence of yesterday afternoon's small explosion. Earthquake activity is on the rise, however, and we anticipate an additional small explosion probably in about 24 hours. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halema`uma`u continues in response to ongoing subsidence of the summit.

Over the last week, sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano's summit have decreased, but emission rates remain high enough to impact air quality in downwind regions. Additional bursts of gas released with intermittent explosive activity are also transported downwind and may temporarily affect air quality as well.

Image

The most notable thing about the summit notes is that they now seem to have keyed in on a pattern of quakes to explosions so much that they can give predictions. If you scroll back to 9:01 AM and 10:40 AM on the live stream today there were small ash explosions. Edit: 11:28 also.

I had to wonder - if you had beachfront land that is now inundated and the lava has filled in more land, who owns it?

https://motherboard.vice.com/en_us/article/ywen3y/who-owns-the-new-land-created-by-a-volcano-in-hawaii-kilauea-big-island
Quote:
“Rather than allowing only a few of the many lava victims the windfall of lava extensions, this court believes that equity and sound public policy demand that such land inure to the benefit of all the people of Hawaii, in whose behalf the government acts as trustee,” the Court ruled, adding that lava extensions are for the “use and enjoyment of all the people.”

In 2008, this precedent was cited to determine that a Big Island man unlawfully built a pavillion on a lava extension in Puna on the southeast coastline. Furthermore, lands covered by fresh lava flows don’t change hands. So the dozens of Big Island land owners whose homes were tragically destroyed this month won’t lose their properties, for example.


That seems really over-simplified though. If you had beachfront land, you should still have beachfront land - but it looks like that is not the case. With history as a guide, that may be academic. When Kapoho was inundated in the last big lava flow, it was never rebuilt (the area north and east of where Kapoho was a month ago). What happens then? Does the State buy your land from you? Do you just take the loss? Seems like if the State makes the decision to never re-build, they should compensate you in some way.

The State isnt taking the land from them though. Their plot is still their plot. The land thats been added isnt designated yet. If you have riverfront property and the river bed changes you dont get an automatic extension do you?

Scientist Describes Eruption Changes (Jun. 6, 2018)

Ongoing series of updates given to the public by USGS. Ha I was right about that big quake opening up space for the magma to flow into. They calculated between 6-9 million cubic meters of lava per day during Fissure 8's peak days. 15x - 25x the eruption rate of Puu Oo over the 35 years. Wow.

And here's a graph of the quake activity at the summit with the activity falling off after each little eruption. Looks very regular.

Speaking of escaping, before the lava overran the bay area there were still about a dozen holdouts staying. Whatever happened to them? I cant find any info.
