Late this afternoon, the Civil Defense said “No change in activity; lava has covered 104 acres and destroyed 35 structures. Also a new website has been set up to help community response” on the USGS Volcanoes Twitter feed.

This morning, USGS Volcanoes tweeted “the Leilani Estates eruption in Kilauea’s lower East Rift Zone has paused. Gas emissions line and fissure system is 2.5 miles long.”

The new website has updates and how you can help residents and visitors affected by the volcano eruptions and 6.9 earthquake on the big island of Hawaii.
