The highly-active fissure 8 keeps producing lava that is flowing to the ocean. According to Hawaii Volcano Observatory officials, the small overflow outbreak near Highway 132 and Pohoiki Road is now fully confined within the channel.
Lava from Fissure 8 apparently gushed 130-180 feet in the air with occasionally higher bursts, according to officials.
The public has been asked to stay out of Lava Tree Park, and those near the area should be prepared to evacuate in a moment's notice. USGS measurements taken over the weekend show that gas emissions have nearly doubled, which could indicate an increase in eruption rate from Fissure no. 8
