Kilauea Summit Update – 8/21/15
Activity at Kilauea’s summit continues to record inflationary tilt, which has been consistent since it began on Aug. 19.
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory noted Friday morning that the lava lake within the Overlook crater remains active. When measured on Aug. 20, the surface was about 58 meters below the floor of Halema`uma`u.
Within the Overlook crater, seismic tremor continues as episodic bursts associated with spattering erring.
Activity at the summit remains within normal Kilauea activity.
Seismic rates, both within Kilauea and at Puʻu ʻŌʻō, remain low.
At Puʻu ʻŌʻō, no changes have been noted in the persistent incandescent crater vents.
Webcam imagery of the June 27, 2014 lava flow continues to show activity with scattered breakouts in three areas, all within 5 miles of Puʻu ʻŌʻō.
