Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that the summit of Kilauea continues to record inflationary tilt over the past day. The current trend of inflation began on Monday at about 12 p.m., according to HVO.

Kilauea’s summit also continues to display seismic tremor in response to spattering that is occurring within the Overlook vent.

HVO reports that late Tuesday evening, the lava lake within the overlook vent remained active and was recorded as being 177 feet below the current floor of Halema’uma’u.

Along the north flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, no significant tilt has been reported in recent day.

Seismicity rate below Kilauea’s summit and at Puʻu ʻŌʻō have both remained at background levels in the past day, according to HVO.


Scientists continue to observe the June 27 lava flow through webcam and satellite imagery. Images show continued activity to the northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, within 5 miles.
