Detailed Description

Two ocean entry points remain active near Kupapa‘u Point, near the boundary of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. The eastern entry has produced a larger plume than that at the western entry, which tends to be weak and wispy. Today several small breakouts were active just inland of the eastern entry point, creating a narrow cascade of lava pouring down the sea cliff.
