U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY photo
Fissure 8 lava flows Monday in an open channel all the way to the ocean. Kapoho Crater is the vegetated hill on the right side of the photograph. The ocean entry plume can be seen in the distance.
While fissure 8 continues to steadily produce lava from Kilauea volcano, three other fissures are displaying weak signs of activity.
