HVO Kilauea ORANGE/WATCH - Eruption continues at summit and East Rift Zone. Flows pose no threat to nearby communities.

22 Mar 15:40 | SciTech

Mar 22, 2017 19:07 - Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and at the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on its East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō continues to enter the ocean at Kamokuna and surface flows from a March 5 breakout are still active above the pali. These lava flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time. The summit lava lake was about 18 m (59 ft) below the Overlook crater rim when measured this morning. Summit Observations: Deflationary tilt was recorded by summit tiltmeters throughout most of yesterday, consistent with ...read more »

AVO Bogoslof ORANGE/WATCH - No unusual seismicity detected; Weakly elevated surface temperatures observed.

21 Mar 18:35 | U.S. News

Mar 21, 2017 21:57 - No significant volcanic activity has been detected in seismic or infrasound data over the past day. Weakly elevated surface temperatures were observed in satellite views. Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Additional explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds could occur at any time. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for short-term forecasts of imminent significant explosive activity. Although we are able to detect energetic ...read more »

AVO Cleveland YELLOW/ADVISORY - Seismic activity is low. Minor steaming observed in web camera.

21 Mar 18:35 | SciTech

Mar 21, 2017 21:57 - No significant volcanic activity has been detected in seismic or infrasound data over the past day. Views of the summit crater by satellite were obscured by clouds today. Minor steaming was observed in web camera images. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning and satellite data. read more »

Mar 21, 2017 20:46 - Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and at the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on its East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō is entering the ocean at Kamokuna and is feeding surface flows above the pali. These lava flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time. Inflationary tilt at the summit continues. The lava lake level was about 14.5 m (48 ft) below the Overlook crater rim when measured this morning. Seismicity at Kīlauea has not changed significantly in the past several days, and remains at a low level. Summit ...read more »
