HVO Kilauea ORANGE/WATCH - Eruption continues at summit and East Rift Zone. Flows pose no threat to nearby communities.

19 Sep 17:35 | SciTech

Sep 19, 2017 21:09 - Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at the summit and from the Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on its East Rift Zone. The episode 61g lava flow continues to enter the ocean at Kamokuna. Surface flow activity persists on the upper portion of the flow field, on the pali, and in scattered areas of the coastal plain. These lava flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time. Low rates of ground deformation and seismicity continue across the volcano. Summit Observations: Summit tiltmeters recorded fairly flat tilt over the past two days, which is still ...read more »

AVO Cleveland ORANGE/WATCH - No activity in satellite, seismic or infrasound data. Minor steaming in webcam images.

19 Sep 17:35 | SciTech

Sep 19, 2017 20:23 - Low-level unrest continues at Cleveland Volcano. Nothing significant was observed in satellite images over the past day. Minor steaming at the summit was visible in web camera views. No activity detected in seismic or infrasound data. Cleveland volcano is monitored with a limited real-time seismic network, which inhibits AVO's ability to detect precursory unrest that may lead to an explosive eruption. Rapid detection of an ash-producing eruption may be possible using a combination of seismic, infrasound, lightning, and satellite data.read more »

AVO Bogoslof ORANGE/WATCH - Slightly elevated surface temperatures. No activity observed in seismic/infrasound data.

19 Sep 17:35 | SciTech

Sep 19, 2017 20:23 - Unrest at Bogoslof volcano continues. Slightly elevated surface temperatures were observed in two satellite images of Bogoslof Island over the past day. No activity was detected in seismic or infrasound data from neighboring islands. Bogoslof volcano remains at a heightened state of unrest and in an unpredictable condition. Activity can escalate quickly with explosions producing high-altitude (>15,000 ft) volcanic clouds with little to no detectable precursory activity. Some previous explosions have been preceded by an increase in earthquake activity that allowed for ...read more »
