December 11, 2022 — Mauna Loa Eruption Map

December 11, 2022
Color map of eruption
The Northeast Rift Zone eruption of Mauna Loa that began the evening of November 27, 2022, continues at greatly reduced levels as of December 11, 2022 (fourteenth full day). Only incandescence was observed within fissure 3 overnight. The channels below the vent appear drained of lava and no longer feed the main flow front. For this reason, the total area covered by lava is unchanged since yesterday.
