Kīlauea Eruption & Maunaloa Update, August 11, 2022

3:04 AM · Aug 12, 2022

Philip is out sick today, so Dane takes the helm. Kilauea remains erupting, Mauna Loa is quiet after last week's elevated earthquake activity. We review the latest updates from USGS on both volcanoes, and look at the ongoing brush fire on Saddle Road. We also will look at the latest on Pohoiki leading into the community meeting on the boat ramp dredging project. On Kīlauea summit, excellent lava viewing continues. SO2 emissions remain quite bothersome to affected downwind residents and occasionally to visitors within Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park. Overall, the crater continues to methodically fill with lava injected under the hardened crust, with no indication of magma movement outside of the summit and thus without any increased volcanic threat to people. As usual, we review the latest monitoring data, media and webcam images courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, highlighting the graphics and discussing live viewer questions as we go. We share views from Kupinaʻi Pali (aka Waldron's Ledge) in the park filmed by Two Pineapples
