Hawaii Kilauea Volcano Update: Map of lava flow shows Big Island area OBLITERATED
The USGS warned “vigorous eruptions of lava” are still going off along the fissure system in Leilani Estate.
The agency said: “The three closely spaced lava fountains at Fissure Eight are erupting with maximum heights reaching 150 to 180 feet.
“Lava continues to be fed into the channelized flow trending north and then east to the ocean entry at Kapoho.”
The USGS map shows an active flow channel extending from Fissure Eight in Leilani is pushing northeast and towards the coastline near Kapoho.
Active ocean entry points along Vacationland are still dropping hot lava into the ocean creating extremely dangerous conditions.
