Where the lava meets the ocean at Kapoho bay. Between the lava flow half a mile wide and the ocean there’s an entire community that’s being destroyed right now. You can see fissure 8 that’s feeding the flow off to the left, miles away. #Kilauea #BigIsland #Hawaii @CNN

We just saw a person running onshore south of the lava flow. That person is one of 9 or so people who officials say are stranded with a river of lava on one side and the Pacific Ocean on the other. #KilaueaVolcano #BigIsland #Hawaii

To say anyone who lives here saw this coming is an understatement.


From the Before pics the area looks really pretty. As someone commented last night "Vulcanism created it; vulcanism is taking it away." I noticed the developed area is sandwiched between 2 lava flows and I'm surprised there wasnt more vegetation on the flows after 60 years.

Lava flow from Fissure 8 enters Kapoho Bay

https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatorie ... e-2170.jpg
Overflight photograph at approximately 6:13 a.m. HST shows the lava flow originating from Fissure 8 (not visible in photograph) entering Kapoho Bay. The ocean entry was reported to have occurred by 10:30 p.m. on the night of June 3, 2018.

Video from helicopter overflight of Kīlauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone on June 4, 2018, shows lava from fissure 8 entering the ocean at Kapoho Bay. View to the north.


HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, June 4, 2018, 8:49 AM HST (Monday, June 4, 2018, 18:49 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 and Lanipuna Gardens.

Fountaining at Fissure 8 continued overnight, feeding a robust lava channel to northeast along Highway 132 to the Kapoho area. Local videographers reported that lava entered the ocean at Kapoho Bay at about 10:30 PM HST on June 3. As of 6:30 AM on June 4, lava is constructing a delta in Kapoho Bay extending a few hundred yards into the bay. A laze plume is blowing inland from the ocean entry but dissipating quickly. The lava flow front is about 0.5 miles wide. A lava breakout is also occurring upslope of the Kapoho cone cinder pit, with active flows about 330 yards southeast of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Cinder Road.

Sluggish lava flows are present in the vicinity of Fissure 18; all other fissures are inactive.


Holy moly look how high Fissure 8 is right now. I think thats the highest its ever been.

This is just surreal..
'Video taken a few hours ago. This shows the extent of the damage the flow did to Kapoho. Kapoho bay has almost disappeared. The flow front is approximately 1/2 mile wide and spreading at the seams 1/2 mile above the ocean entry. Also a few fingers have broken out from the channelized flow uprift of the ocean entry. A flow has broken off of the channelized flow uphill of Green Mountain and has started to flow on the southern end of Green Mountain towards highway 137 and another flow has also started to flow towards Wa’aWa’a'

Earthquakes, Explosions Damage Hawaii Volcanoes National Park (Jun. 4, 2018)

From the M5.5 quake yesterday. No point in repairing anything until it stops, methinks.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, June 4, 2018, 10:21 PM HST (Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 08:21 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 and Lanipuna Gardens.

Fountaining at Fissure 8 continues to feed a robust channel transporting lava to the northeast along Highway 132 and east to the ocean entry in Kapoho Bay. Multiple observations from field crews and overflights suggest the Fissure 8 fountain is less vigorous this evening, with maximum heights of 130-160 feet. As of early evening, lava was filling Kapoho Bay, extending out approximately 750 yards from shore. A laze plume is blowing inland from the ocean entry but is dissipating quickly. The lava breakout on the north side of the Kapoho cinder pits continues to be stalled southeast of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Cinder Road. A lava breakout from the south margin of the flow near the intersection of Highway 132 and Railroad Avenue has completely encircled the Green Lake cone.

Sluggish lava flows are present in the vicinity of Fissure 18, and there are reports of spattering at Fissures 6/13. All other fissures are inactive.

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

Earthquake activity at the summit was low after Sunday's small explosion, but has slowly increased since that time. Levels are approaching those of Sunday early afternoon, before the most recent small explosion. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halema`uma`u continues in response to persistent subsidence. We expect that earthquake rates will increase in the coming hours and culminate in another small explosion, perhaps within the next day, following the pattern of the past few weeks.

Over the last week, sulfur dioxide passively degassing from the volcano's summit has 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.

Some more geographical and life changes...
"Photograph from the overflight shows a delta growing seaward from the location where #Kapoho Bay used to be. Southern #lava flow branch is moving into Vacationland and tide pools. Apologies for blurry photograph, but we know sharing is more important than quality at this point"

Such a pity. I read that one of the features of that area were ocean pools that were fed by subterranean sea connection because each pool was ringed by dried lava on the surface.


HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY STATUS REPORT
U.S. Geological Survey
Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 8:10 AM HST (Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 18:10 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 and Lanipuna Gardens.

The intensity of lava fountaining at Fissure 8 declined overnight, and fountain height is fluctuating between 130 and 160 feet (not far above the top of the cone that has formed over the past week). Fissure 8 continues to feed a channel transporting lava to the northeast along Highway 132 and east to the ocean entry in Kapoho Bay.

HVO's 6:30 AM HST overflight confirmed that lava completely fills Kapoho Bay, extending 0.7 miles from the former coastline. To the south, lava is entering the water at the Vacationland tidepools, having inundated most of that subdivision. To the north, lava has covered all but the northern part of Kapoho Beach Lots. The northernmost lobe of the Fissure 8 flow, in the Noni Farms Road area, advanced downslope about 200 yards overnight.

No other fissure vents showed significant activity this morning.

Kīlauea Volcano Summit

High levels of earthquake activity occurred for most of Monday night and into Tuesday morning. A small explosion, with an equivalent earthquake magnitude of M5.5, occurred at 4.32 AM HST, generating a small plume that rose about 1000 feet above the summit. Since the small explosion, summit seismicity has been low, following the pattern of previous events. Inward slumping of the rim and walls of Halema`uma`u continues in response to ongoing subsidence of the summit.

Locally felt earthquakes are expected to continue and further ash explosions are likely.

One of the side notes I've observed during all this is that USGS is pretty much just a passive observer or at least they come off that way. I think I read that this event is not enough like any of the predecessors for them to be offering any more projections like they were at the start. Its already exceeded what the 1955 flow did.

Fissure 8 looks like a cliche volcano painting now.

They just posted a new image of the delta. Large original here: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/De8wJDfU8AAu9gg.jpg

That IG post was sad. How cool to have your own backyard tidal pool instead of a useless lawn.

In one of the Instagram posts they said it used to be considered cool to have a volcanic feature in your yard. Not any more.

I read today that the lava has covered almost 8 square miles so far.

I just wonder how much material is being pumped out.
I read one fissure #22 was doing 60 cubic yards a minute... all irrelevant, like they're going to put the lava in a pumper and pour a driveway.

Now that the clouds have cleared you get a nice view. What a fortunately placed webcam for all of this.

About the amount of lava coming out, whats to prevent another lobe starting to go more NE toward WaaWaa? A little outbreak already started following the descent line. The thing I would really be fearful of is living right next to the mandatory evac limit to the west in Leilani Estates. If that lava levee breaches all that hot fast lava is going to be pouring out so fast I dont think people could escape.
