Detailed Description

There was a series of vent wall and rim collapses on March 3, much like those than occurred in January and February. This video, compiled from the Webcam on the rim of Halema‘uma‘u above the vent, is one of the larger collapses, and shows the northwest rim of the vent falling into the lava lake.
