Kīlauea Eruption Update: Lava Lake Bulging Near Vents

3:09 AM · Oct 5, 2021

Kīlauea's summit lava lake continues to fill, and is taller near its vents. We show new video from a public overlook within Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park this morning, along with a visual tour through the current and recent state of the volcano. We summarize and annotate the available monitoring data, media and reports provided courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, including our own time-lapse compilations of selected webcams. The eruption poses no direct threat to people, apart from its gas, shifting our focus to the observed processes and their context in volcano science. This program is brought to you in part by a grant from the Hawaiʻi Island Strong Fund of the Hawaiʻi Community Foundation in partnership with the County of Hawaiʻi, and from smaller donations from viewers like you.
