Map of volcano summit eruption

This reference map depicts the ongoing Kīlauea summit eruption as of approximately 6:00 PM on September 29, 2021. Several new fissures (orange lines) within Halema‘uma‘u have erupted enough lava (red) to cover nearly all of the 12/2021–5/2021 lava lake by more than 36 ft (11 m). From that lava lake, only the peaks of the two largest islands and the west vent (shaded purple) remain exposed at this time. Note that this map depicts contour elevations in feet, with the surface of the new lava lake now at approximately 2474 ft (754 m) above sea level.
