Lava from fissure 8 is fed into a channel that travels about 13 km (8 mi) to the sea. A plume marks the location of fissure 8, visible in the upper right; a small plume in the upper center marks the location of fissure 22. Each morning, HVO field crews conduct an overflight of the lava channel to determine if there have been any overflows. Intermittent small, short-lived overflows have occurred, but these overflows rarely extend beyond the existing flow field. Photo taken Saturday, June 30, 2018 courtesy of U.S. Geological Survey

Kilauea Eruption: Fissure 8 very active, fissure 22 producing short flow Saturday (June 30)
