December 10, 2022 — Mauna Loa Eruption Map

Detailed Description

The Northeast Rift Zone eruption of Mauna Loa that began the evening of November 27, 2022, continues at reduced levels as of December 10, 2022 (thirteenth full day). One active fissure, fissure 3, is feeding a pāhoehoe lava flow that remains confined to the existing lava channel from earlier in the eruption. For this reason, the total area covered by lava is unchanged since yesterday.
