Deflationary tilt at the summit of Kilauea continues Wednesday.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that the lava lake within the Overlook crater is active but hasn’t seen any changes over the past day.

Seismicity beneath Kilauea’s summit, as well as at Puʻu ʻŌʻō, has remained at low levels.

Puʻu ʻŌʻō activity continues to remain unchanged as the incandescent crater vents persist.

June 27, 2014 lava flow activity is flowing in areas northeast and east of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. The flow is being monitored by HVO personnel through webcam imagery. Activity in three areas in an area near Puʻu ʻŌʻō continue.
