February 1, 2024 — Continued unrest at Kīlauea

Detailed Description

Unrest continues at Kīlauea with heightened seismic activity and ground tilt changes. On January 31, HVO geologists were stationed on the west rim of Kaluapele (Kīlauea caldera) to document the onset of any eruptive activity at the summit. Numerous earthquakes shook the rim and frequent rockfalls occurred on the walls of Halema‘uma‘u crater. but an eruption did not occur. Earthquake activity quieted down later in the day, but later migrated along the Koa‘e fault system, where it is ongoing. USGS photo by M. Patrick.
