Lava News: HVO Oct. 1 Report

From Hawaii Volcano Observatory:

Kilauea continued to erupt at its summit and within the East Rift Zone, and gas emissions remained elevated. Inflationary ground tilt and a rise in lava level were recorded at the summit over the past day. At the middle East Rift Zone, the leading edge of the June 27th lava flow remains stalled, although scattered breakouts of lava are present near the lava flow front and at other places between the flow front and Pu`u `O`o

June 27th Lava Flow Observations: The June 27th lava flow remains active. Based on observations from HVO webcams, there have been no significant changes to the flow front since yesterday. On Monday breakouts of lava were observed where the flow first enters the crack system about 8 km (5 mi) behind the stalled front, and where it exits the crack system about 3 km (2 mi) back from the front. At the leading edge of the flow, two lobes of weak surface activity were observed at 125 m (410 ft) and 580 m (1900 ft) behind the front. Both lobes were creeping northeast around the north side of the existing flow. An HVO overflight is scheduled this morning.
