12:36 AM · Jun 12, 2021

Earth’s largest volcano remains quiet on the surface, but adjustments slowly continue underground, highlighted by a M3.2 earthquake on June 8, 0.8 mi (1.3 km) above sea level beneath the summit and uppermost southwest rift. Smaller magnitude earthquakes continue with approximately 60 events this week, albeit at a slower pace than earlier in 2021 when counts often exceeded 200 events per week, according to the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory’s weekly update. They report GPS and ground tilt stations on the summit are registering no significant change, as are gas, temperature and visual monitors as well. A new USGS-HVO webcam view of Maunaloa’s north flank from Maunakea is available here, with features as annotated in the image: Join our weekly live video review of Kīlauea and Maunaloa volcanoes, at 5pm Hawaiʻi time Thursdays as of June 2021!
