[M8cam] Mauna Loa - Northeast Rift Zone Fissure 3 Eruption Live View
Live video of fissure 3 erupting on the Northeast Rift Zone of Mauna Loa volcano. The camera is located roughly 1 mi (1.6 km) East of fissure 3 and looks west.
Disclaimer: The webcams are operational 24/7 and faithfully record the dark of night if there are no sources of incandescence or other lights. Thermal webcams record heat rather than light and get better views through volcanic gas. At times, clouds and rain obscure visibility. The cameras are subject to sporadic breakdown, and may not be repaired immediately. Some cameras are observing an area that is off-limits to the general public because of significant volcanic hazards.

Most of the focus on Mauna Loa's lava flow has been on when it might reach Daniel K Inouye Highway. But the lava front is now on the edge of the Pohakuloa Training Area.
Viewing Mauna Loa is no easy task, whether on the ground or up in the air. KITV4 had the opportunity to shoot video from a bird's eye view of the Mauna Loa eruption.
