Kilauea Volcano, Hawaii - John Seach

A new lava ocean entry has occurred inside Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, for the first time since 2007. The western Prince lava flow reached the ocean at Waha`ula on Thursday 22nd January. The ocean entry was small and didn't produce steam. Waikupanaha ocean entry continues to be active. On Wednesday 21st January there were two earthquakes beneath the south summit caldera of Kilauea, and two on south flank faults. A small ash emission occurred at Halemaumau crater.
