New HVO webcam: [KOcam] South of Kīlauea caldera towards 1982 flow

Release Date:

A new USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory webcam provides views to the south of Kīlauea caldera in the area of the August 2021 intrusion. Near-live webcam views and a 24-hour animated GIF are available here: [KOcam] - South of Kīlauea caldera towards 1982 flow (usgs.gov)

The new KOcam, located just southwest of Kīlauea summit caldera, looks south over the area of the August 2021 intrusion. With permission from Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, HVO rapidly deployed the camera to help monitor for any changes in the area. The dark lava flow on the left of image (mid-ground) is where the 1982 lava flow spilled out from the southern caldera.
