Lava Continues to Flow Into Ocean
The U.S. Geological Survey released these photos showing Fissure 22 continues to erupt and flows into the ocean.

Lava continues to enter the sea at two locations this morning.
During this morning’s overflight, the wind was blowing the “laze” plumes along the shoreline toward the southwest.
A small explosion occurred at 12:55 AM at Halema’uma’u crater at Kīlauea’s summit. It produced an ash plume that reached about 7,000 ft asl and was carried by the wind to the southwest.
Additional explosive events that could produce minor amounts of ashfall downwind are possible at any time.
