~ Eruptions sites stable and active ~

A few days ago I posted the aerial image below with notes. The area on it I labeled ‘Coastal flats hot zone’ is where the other photos I add today were all taken. This lavascape is hot and degassing in places, especially along the lava tube delivery lines.Above - looking northwest across the coastal flats towards the Pulama pali where the lava tubes run down the mountain to this area.
Below: The swath of destruction across the 'hot zone' and the ocean entry steam plume beyond

No surface flows are being found lately.

D/I events are beginning do the 24-hour pulsing thing again:

Both Halema’uma’u and the coastal ocean entry visitor sites have good viewing of the ongoing eruption.

I will add updates when I can, or when significant changes to the volcanic eruption take place…. Or, of course, any other exciting stuff is heading towards the islands like super ocean swells, tsunamis or hurricanes…
~ Aloha,
