Eruption Activity On Kilauea Decreases

Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

National Park News

The Kamoamoa fissure eruption decreased in activity through Wednesday afternoon and paused late that evening. At the summit, the lava lake remained deep below the rim of the vent inset within the east wall of Halema`uma`u Crater. East rift zone seismicity, summit seismicity, and sulfur dioxide emissions decreased, but all remained elevated. The park plans to open the upper four miles of Chain of Craters Road today. The road will be open from 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. daily as conditions allow. Permitted backcountry hikers may access coastal trails from the Ka`u Desert trailhead. The Hilina Pali Road and Kulanaokuaiki Campground will remain closed. For further information, click on these links:
