Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii - John Seach

Sulphur dioxide emissions at the summit of Kilauea volcano were more than more than 1,000 tonnes/day yesterday. This is the second highest emission rate measured at Kilauea summit since regular measurements were started in 1979. The National Park Service has closed all pullouts and parking areas in the south caldera due to hazardous gas emissions. Seismic tremor levels are elevated at Kilauea summit. Two small earthquakes were located beneath the summit area and on south flank faults.
