Volcano Watch: Kilauea activity update for September 22, 2016

Kīlauea continues to erupt at its summit and East Rift Zone. The summit lava lake level varied between 33–92 feet below the vent rim within Halema‘uma‘u Crater. The 61g lava flow continued to enter the ocean near Kamokuna.

On September 10, 2016, Kīlauea Volcano’s summit lava lake rose to within 5 m (16 ft) of the vent rim (shown above). This is the highest level the lake has reached since it overflowed the vent in April-May 2015, when lava flowed onto the floor of Halemaʻumaʻu Crater, forming the dark-colored rock visible on either side of the vent. Charred and broken fencing (upper left) is all that remains of a former visitor overlook, closed to the public since 2008 due to explosions, volcanic gas emissions, and other hazards associated with the lava lake.
