Kīlauea is not erupting. The summit eruption that began on September 10 ended on September 16. It is unlikely that the recent eruption will resume based on the behavior of past, short-lived summit fissure eruptions at Kīlauea summit in 1982, 1975, 1974, and 1971, which all ended abruptly. Future eruptions at Kīlauea's summit remain possible and HVO continues to monitor activity.
