Lava map breakdown: Kapoho Bay completely filled as lava continues to flow

Posted: Updated:
HONOLULU (KITV) -

A vigorous eruption of lava continues from fissure number 8 in Leilani Estates. 

Fountaining has fluctuated reaching heights of 230 feet, feeding a lava channel flowing east to the Kapoho Bay area. 

The bay has filled in completely.

Satellite radar images of the Kilauea Caldera from USGS show the expansion of the summit eruptive vent at Halema'uma'u Crater.

A live webcam image of the crater displays vog in the sky and a continuous ash plume.

The red color on the map of the East Rift Zone indicates flow expansion.
