Detailed Description

Kīlauea Volcano’s summit, seen here from the northeast rim of the caldera, has remained quiet, with no collapse events since August 2. It remains too soon to tell if this diminished activity represents a temporary lull or the end of summit collapses. HVO continues to record detailed visual observations and monitor seismic, deformation, and gas data for any indications of possible renewed activity.
