Kīlauea & Maunaloa Update, June 17, 2021

3:08 AM · Jun 18, 2021

The south flanks of both Hawaiian volcanoes are seismically active this week, with an increase on Maunaloa and a continuation of the elevated activity on Kīlauea following the apparent end of its recent summit eruption. Magma still appears to be pressurizing Kīlauea more quickly beneath its summit and upper east rift, with continuing increases evident in the baseline ground tilt and caldera GPS monitors, available as usual by courtesy of the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. This week we untangle the recent earthquake patterns in the context of other deformation signals, while sharing the latest available visuals and discussing live viewer questions at several points in our presentation as usual. We will also talk about today's M4.5 earthquake near Pahala that occurred at 4:32pm HST. 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.
