USGS Releases New Map of East Rift Zone
The U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) released this map of the current eruptions happening in Leilani Estates.
This thermal map shows a close up of the northeastern end of the fissure system, as of 12:15 p.m. on May 18, 2018. The Fissure 17 lava flow had not advanced a significant distance over the past day, but the Fissure 18 flow traveled approximately 1 km (0.6 miles) over the past day. The black and white area is the extent of the thermal map.
Temperature in the thermal image is displayed as gray-scale values, with the brightest pixels indicating the hottest areas.
