Lava lake rises to within 13 feet of the floor of Halemaumau

By Hawaii 24/7 Staff

Halemaumau’s Overlook Crater’s lava lake again push upwards as the summit of Kilauea Volcano continued to inflate Sunday (April 26). The lake rose to within 13 feet of the Overlook Crater rim and level with the floor of Halemaumau overnight before dropping to 20 feet in the morning.

Visitors to the Jagger Museum said access to the parking lot was being limited to 50 cars at a time so plan on a walk from the Kilauea Overlook area or farther. On Saturday evening reports were that the line of cars were backed-up to the Kilauea Visitor’s Center to get to the museum parking lot.

Early Sunday evening foggy conditions prevented clear viewing of the lava lake from the Jagger Museum as evident from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory webcam. Other USGS/HVO webcam views can be seen here.
