Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported this morning that eruption activity continues from fissure No. 8 into the lava channel flowing to the ocean entry at Ahalanui producing a large laze plume.
The most vigorous ocean entry is located a few hundred yards northeast of the southern flow margin with a few tiny pahoehoe toes were entering the ocean from the Kapoho Bay lobe to the north. The southern margin of the flow remains about 0.3 miles from the Pohoiki boat ramp and Isaac Hale Park.
Earthquakes continue at the Kilauea summit. A collapse-explosion event occurred at 9:43 a.m. Saturday with energy released the equivalent of a magnitude-5.4 earthquake.
