Locations, mapped by USGS-HVO scientists, of eruptive fissures in the order that they occurred in the Leilani Estates Subdivision

Kīlauea East Rift Zone Map as of 8:00 a.m., May 4...

This map shows the locations, mapped by USGS-HVO scientists, of the three eruptive fissures in the order that they occurred in the Leilani Estates Subdivision as of 8:00 a.m. HST today (May 4). The fissures are jetting copious amounts of sulfur dioxide gas, which should be avoided. Spatter is also being emitted, but lava flows are not extending far from the active fissures. The eruption remains dynamic, which means that changes could occur with little notice. Updated maps will be posted on this webpage as new information becomes available. Eruption updates are posted on HVO's website at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/Kīlauea/status.html​​​​​​​ -- or you can sign up to receive automatic update messages through the USGS Volcano Notification Service at http://volcanoes.usgs.gov/vns/.
