LavaTalk: August 31, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

The June 27th lava flow remains active, with continued advancement of the flow front towards the northeast. The farthest portion of the June 27th flow is issuing from a ground crack and advancing through thick forest, creating small brush fires.

Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for August 29, 2014

On the East Rift Zone of Kīlauea Volcano, the June 27th flow from Puʻu ʻŌʻō remained active. The farthest point on the steaming ground crack was 11.9 km (7.4 mi) from the vent.

HawaiianTel restores service to all but 500 customers in Puna

Hawaiian Telcom restored service to more than 1,000 customers in the Puna District over the past two days, bringing the total number of customers out of service to about 500. Thousands of damaged wires needed to be spliced together.

This figure compares the photo above with an equivalent view from a thermal camera on August 28, 2014. The plumes of smoke mark the farthest active lava on the surface (small, scattered lobes of pāhoehoe), which are also shown as small hotspots in the thermal image. The pad of lava that emerged from the ground crack earlier this week was inactive at the surface but still quite warm (high temperature patch in center of image). East of this pad of lava, steaming (just below the center of the photograph) has appeared over the past day, suggesting that lava is continuing to advance below the surface along a ground crack. Direct views into the crack were not possible due to thick vegetation, but close views of the steaming areas with the thermal camera reveal temperatures up to 190 C (370 F). These high temperature are further evidence of lava moving through the crack. Photos courtesy of USGS/HVO

Volcano Watch: June 27th lava flow activity continues, so stay informed!

In response to the USGS/HVO Aug. 22, 2014, news release that Kīlauea’s June 27th lava flow could become a concern for communities downhill of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō vent, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency has quickly organized a series of informational meetings.

Jim Kauahikaua, Scientist in Charge at Hawaiian Volcano Observatory and Darryl Oliveira, Director of Hawaii County Civil Defense brief the audience Thursday (Aug 28) at the Pahoa Community Center on the progression and preparations in regards to the lava flow.
