New HVO webcam: [MKcam] Mauna Loa's Summit and Northeast Rift Zone from Mauna Kea
The new MKcam provides a wide view of Mauna Loa, and should be helpful for monitoring future activity at Mauna Loa's summit, Northeast Rift Zone, and potentially radial vents. The camera will also allow for tracking volcanic gas plume heights from Mauna Loa and Kīlauea.
