Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii - John Seach

A new fissure eruption began at Kilauea volcano after midnight on 21st July (local time). Two fissures, each about 600-800 m long, opened up between Pu`u `O`o and Kupaianaha on the east rift zone. Two lava flows up to 2 miles long began from the easternmost fissure and flowed southeast. The eruption was preceded by a drop in lava in Pu`u `O`o crater.
