New photos show different scenes of Kilauea's eruption

By Star-Advertiser staff


Photos released by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory over the weekend show a rising lava lake in Halemaumau Crater, the Kahaualea 2 lava flow north of Puu Oo Crater burning through a forested area, and lava continuing to enter the ocean south of Puu Oo at Kupapau.

The Halemaumau Crater photos show the fountaining in the lava lake on Friday as the lake level rose to about 115 feet below the crater floor.

Lava continues to enter the ocean at Kupapau, near the border with the national park. But the lava flow is weak, according to scientists monitoring the eruption.

Most of the lava seems to be going north to the Kahaualea 2 lava flow. That flow is burning through some forest north of Puu Oo Crater.
