Fissure 8 may have slowed down, but HVO scientists are still on the ground in Leilani Estates, monitoring old ground cracks and marking ones that haven't been surveyed before. Monitoring these cracks over multiple days and help detect any new signs of magma movement beneath the ground, one of the indicators that fissures might reactivate. As of Sunday August 12, no unusual changes in cracks were noted. Photo taken Sunday, August 12, 2018 courtesy of U.S. Geological Survey
