(BIVN) – Over the past two weeks, there have been at least three breakouts within 330 ft. of the Kamokuna ocean entry, scientists report.
Taking advantage of Friday’s clear views of the delta (there were only weak plumes being produced by the few ocean entries), the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory posted several photos of the ongoing activity at the ocean entry. They said the coastal breakouts are “putting on a show”.
Spectacular lava cascades down the cliff have been recorded on time-lapse cameras stationed around the ocean entry.
Surface lava flows are also active on the upper portion of the 61g lava flow field and on the pali. The activity does not pose a threat to nearby communities at this time, USGS says. Meanwhile at Puʻu ʻŌʻō, the source of the 61g lava flow, low rates of surface deformations and low levels of seismic activity continue.
