Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone

Kīlauea Volcano Lower East Rift Zone

Kīlauea summit and lower East Rift Zone

Seismicity and ground deformation are negligible at the summit of Kīlauea
Volcano. On the volcano's lower East Rift Zone (LERZ), only a few ocean entries
are oozing lava; laze plumes are minimal. Sulfur dioxide emission rates at both the
summit and LERZ are drastically reduced; the combined rate is lower than at any
time since late 2007.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) will continue to closely monitor
Kīlauea's seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation,
and maintain visual surveillance of the summit and LERZ.

HVO will continue to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed. The
next status report will be issued tomorrow morning unless significant changes
