Kīlauea summit and lower East Rift Zone

On Kīlauea Volcano's lower East Rift Zone (LERZ), no significant incandescence
was visible overnight in the collapse pit within the fissure 8 cone. Minor fuming
has been visible during the day. Seismicity and ground deformation remain low at
the summit of Kīlauea.

No collapses within Puʻu ʻŌʻō crater have been observed since September 14.
Rates of tilting throughout the East Rift Zone are much lower than those observed
during the recent period of major eruptive activity. There has been no change in
seismicity during the past week. Small aftershocks from the magnitude-6.9
earthquake in early May are still being generated along faults located on Kīlauea's
south flank.

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission rates at the summit, Puʻu ʻŌʻō, and LERZ are
drastically reduced; the combined rate is less than 1,000 tonnes/day, which is
lower than at any time since late 2007. SO2 emission rates from LERZ vents were
below the detection threshold of the measurement technique when last measured
on September 11. Minor amounts of H2S are being emitted at the summit and at
Puʻu ʻŌʻō.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) continues to closely monitor Kīlauea's
seismicity, deformation, and gas emissions for any sign of reactivation, and
maintains visual surveillance of the summit and East Rift Zone. HVO will continue
to issue daily updates and additional messages as needed.
