Kapoho: ‘Only four houses left’

  • U.S. Geological Survey photo Near the coast, the northern margin of the flow field is still oozing pasty lava at several points in the area of Kapoho Agricultural and Beach Lots.

CORRECTION: The U.S. Geological Survey said on Twitter the high levels of sulfur dioxide, between 35,000 and 45,000 tons per day, is occurring at the lower East Rift Zone and not at the volcano’s summit. The HVO website noted: “Sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano’s summit have dropped to levels that are about half those measured prior to the onset of the current episode of eruptive activity.” The Tribune-Herald regrets the error.
