Detailed Description

Kīlauea Volcano is no longer erupting. Lava supply to the Halemaʻumaʻu lava lake has ceased and sulfur dioxide emissions have decreased to near pre-eruption background levels. Yesterday, the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) lowered the Kīlauea Volcano Alert Level for ground based hazards from WATCH to ADVISORY and the Aviation Color Code from ORANGE to YELLOW. This image, taken from the KWcam around 11 am on May 27, 2021, shows the lava lake that partially filled Halemaʻumaʻu crater over the past five months.
