Detailed Description

Several vents continued to erupt on the western side of the downdropped block within Kīlauea's summit caldera on September 6, 2023.  The roughly east-west trending active vents span approximately 0.5 miles (750 m) and had lava fountain heights of up to about 10 meters (32 feet). From the erupting vents, pāhoehoe lava flows travel in north and west directions onto Halema‘uma‘u crater floor.
