Lower East Rift Zone Eruption
A new outbreak has been reported at 6:00 pm just east of fissure 16. Lava from this latest outbreak is actively spattering and degassing but no flow has yet formed. This area was actively steaming earlier in the day. The new fissure (17) is about a half mile northeast from the end of Hinalo Road, very close to fissure 16 that opened about 6:45 am.
Activity at fissure 16 produced a lava flow that traveled about 250 yards before stalling about 2:30 pm.
HVO field crews are on site and evaluating the new outbreak.
