Fissure 8 continues to be very active and is feeding a lava channel to the ocean at Kapoho, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said Wednesday. The flow is expanding south along the shoreline and is also oozing fresh lava at Kapoho Beach Lots. Gas emissions from the fissure eruption and laze at the ocean entry continue to be very high. Due to active lava near houses in Kapoho, access by residents is not allowed. No additional houses have been destroyed.
