HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Friday, June 8, 2018, 8:25 AM HST (Friday, June 8, 2018, 18:25 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 continue to reach heights of about 220 feet. Geology and UAS crews observed no significant changes in the Fissure 8 flow field. HVO's morning overflight revealed. There is no lava activity from the other fissures but Fissure 24 is incandescent and Fissures 24, 9, and 10 are fuming heavily.


Kīlauea Volcano Summit

At 2:44 AM HST, a small explosion occurred at the summit of Kilauea. No weather radar observations of plume heights are possible, but satellite data suggest that any plume that might have been generated did not exceed 10,000 feet above sea level. Since the small explosion, seismic activity in the summit region has been low. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halema`uma`u continues in response to ongoing subsidence at the summit.

Friday, June 8, 2018, 10:49 PM HST (Saturday, June 9, 2018, 08:49 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.

Lava continues to erupt from Fissure 8, with vigorous fountains reaching heights of about 200-220 feet. Observers on the late afternoon overflight reported no significant changes in the Fissure 8 flow field, which continues to supply lava to the ocean entry at Kapoho. Two vigorous steam plumes are rising from the ocean flow front and being blown inland. Strong thermal upwelling was noted in the ocean extending up to 1000 yards out to sea from the visible lava front. Heavy gas and steam emissions were noted at fissures 9 & 10, but lava emission is occurring only at Fissure 8.

Map as of 12:00 p.m. (noon) HST, June 8, 2018. The fissure 8 flow has created a lava delta approximately 190 acres in size, filling Kapoho Bay and shallow reefs along the nearby coastline.

I see new lava is still entering that old crater. What happens if the new land goes further out than the existing Cape point? Does the old cape get to retain its name?

Satellite views showing the vog (tinted area over the water) and the steam plume and cloud formation from the lava entering the ocean at Kapoho.

Cracking and slumping of the Halema‘uma‘u crater walls are clearly evident in this aerial view captured during HVO's overflight of Kīlauea's summit this morning. Steam plumes have been rising from within the crater, as well as from cracks adjacent to the crater.

Wow! It even looks like the cracking is approaching the caldera wall, if I'm not mistaken.

I've learned so much from this eruption. It makes the drive to Mammoth much more interesting as I visualize how volcanic features along the way were formed.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Saturday, June 9, 2018, 10:37 PM HST (Sunday, June 10, 2018, 08:37 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.

Lava fountaining from Fissure 8 continued throughout the day, topping out at about 200 feet in height. Today's evening observation flight reported no significant changes in the fountain or in the channels carrying lava to the ocean at Kapoho. Minor flows overtopping the channel levees have been observed today, but no significant breakouts have occurred. The ocean entry area continues to produce robust plumes. Observers also noted vigorous convection taking place up to 0.9 miles offshore from the entry points.

Minor lava activity at Fissures 16/18 continued.

Perhaps they are reawakening.

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 fountains from Fissure 8 reached heights of 130-180 feet, feeding a strong channel to the northeast and then east that experienced minor small levee overflows. Near the Four Corners region the channel was incandescent and flowing. Yesterday's measurements show that gas emissions have nearly doubled, possibly indicating an increase in eruption rate from Fissure 8. The morning overflight revealed that the fountains and channels continue to erupt and transport lava to the ocean entry which was one large plume. Offshore of this ocean entry, there is an upwelling of ocean water heated by lava flowing on the ocean floor.

Minor lava activity at Fissures 16/18 continued.

Here is some of that "minor lava activity" overnight (bright spot from spattering to the left side).

I discovered Hawaii247 which amongst other things collects the timelapses off the HVO webcams. Compare the earliest LERZ timelapse when things were still green to the most current one with large areas overrun by lava. Compare an early crater timelapse to the most recent one. The crater edges are crisp and clean - with a lava lake - and now they are steaming and cracked.

Look at how the crater has extended to the right by the bush in the foreground, and how much closer its extended toward the camera and the cliff.

That timelapse of the lava pouring out around PGV and the farmland to the right is amazing.

The eruption prompted NWS to issue a Winter Weather Advisory for the Big Island peaks on Thursday.

Agreed...Looking at the cinder cones and visualizing the spattering and the fountains. Wondering if certain ones took months or years to form; how tall they were compared to #8. Where the flows went and how long a distance.
Got nothing but time to think and imagine what it was like...whilst listening to Jack Johnson. (today)

I overlayed the May 3 crater image (tinted red) onto the image just now to see how much its grown.

Image

The part of 395 that always grabs my attention is the Bishop Tuff and how thick it is. Just imagining what it took to lay down that much boggles my mind.

Just when things look like they might be stabilizing or winding down, something new comes up.

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.

Fissure 8 now consists of three closely-spaced lava fountains, the tallest of which reached heights of 130-180 feet, feeding a strong channel to the northeast and then east to the ocean entry. During the day, minor spillovers have dribbled over the Fissure 8 channel levees but have generally stalled before reaching ground not covered by previous lava flows. Yesterday's measurements show that gas emissions from the fissure system have nearly doubled, possibly indicating an increase in eruption rate from Fissure 8.

Minor lava activity at Fissures 16/18 continued.


Spillovers have been increasing the last 2 days, could an increase in flow be the cause?

Incredible new closeup footage taken by the incomparable @GBradLewis of the fissure 8 fountain that has fired non-stop for nearly two weeks now — as USGS HVO geologists report a possible increase in the eruption rate that’s fueling the fast-moving flow

What was once one of the most scenic locations on the Big Island, locally known as Ka Wai a Pele (Green Lake), the largest of only two freshwater lakes on the Island, 400 years old, and now full of lava. This eruption is relentless in its devouring of places loved by so many for generations. Now all we have are memories.
