Lava continues to flow from fissure 8 as today marks 7 weeks since the first eruption

Wow. Fissure 8 isn't just creating rivers of lava, it's creating "rapids."MORE: #HNN

Aerial footage shows lava still pumping out of fissure 8

Aerial footage shows fissure 8 vigorously pumping out lava into a channel heading through Kapoho. It's now been nearly 11 weeks since the first eruptions started in the Big Island. READ MORE: #HNN

June 14, 2018 morning overflight – Fissure 8 from vent to sea

A helicopter overflight of the lower East Rift Zone on June 14, 2018, around 6:00 AM, shows lava fountaining at fissure 8 feeding channelized lava flows that flow into the ocean.Lava is still flowing out of fissure 8 unabated and the channel is full. At the start of the video, standing waves in the lava channel can be seen near the vent exit. The channel appears crust-free from vent to the bend around Kapoho Crater. A surface crust forms over the channel as it spreads out during its approach to the ocean. The overflight along the ocean entry is from north to south along the coastline. The ocean entry is active along the whole length – approximately 1 mile. Small litoral explosions are occurring and there are several plumes of laze.

#LeilaniEstatesEruption #KilaueaVolcano UPDATE (September 2 at 11 AM): Hawaiʻi Island residents who signed up for Hawaiʻi County Civil Defense Agency alerts received a message this morning informing them that lava has reappeared in the #Fissure8 cone. While I’m waiting for new images from USGS HVO, this drone footage released on August 29 is the most recent video of the spatter cone in #LeilaniEstates. According to the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory: “Seismicity remains low and ground deformation is negligible at the summit of Kīlauea Volcano. Earthquakes, probably aftershocks of the magnitude-6.9 earthquake in early May, continue on South Flank faults. On the volcano's lower East Rift Zone (#LERZ), incandescence was observed in the fissure 8 cone yesterday afternoon (09/01) with reports of activity extending into early evening. In addition to a persistent spot of spattering, lava slowly covered the 65-by-15 m (210-by-45 ft) crater floor by evening. Webcam views showed weak incandescence occasionally reflected on the eastern spillway wall from the crater overnight suggesting that the lava in the crater remained active. This morning, ground crews have no view of the crater inside the fissure 8 cone, but report the fissure 8 cone is quiet when viewed from a safe distance with no visible fume. Sulfur dioxide emission rates at the summit, Puʻu ʻŌʻō, and LERZ are drastically reduced; the combined rate (< 1,000 t/d) is lower than at any time since late 2007. Friday (08/31), LERZ emission rates were still too low to measure.Summit tiltmeter UWE was repaired and reinstalled late last week and, after it settles from the disruption, it will be returned to the Kilauea monitoring webpage. HVO crews continue to restore communication with several monitoring stations on the east side of the island that was disrupted by the passage of Hurricane/Tropical Storm Lane but the losses do not significantly reduce our ability to assess volcanic conditions. Whiteout conditions could occur on the new lava field due due to steam produced by heavy rainfall on still-hot lava flows. The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) will continue to closely monitor Kīlauea’s seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation, and maintain visual surveillance of the summit and LERZ as best we can. Ground and drone crews are in the field today but continue to be hampered by weather conditions.HVO will continue to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed. The next update will be issued tomorrow morning unless significant changes occur.”Stay tuned to Hawaii News Now for the very latest developments #HInews #HawaiiNews #HNN #HawaiiNewsNow #WeAreYourSource (Video taken by USGS HVO on August 21 and released August 29)
