Piton de la Fournaise (France) - Report for 2 August-8 August 2017 - NEW

OVPF reported that the eruption at Piton de la Fournaise that began on 14 July continued through 8 August, though tremor levels and surficial activity slowly declined.
Satellite data indicated a minimum flow rate of 1-2 cubic meters per second.
Some active lava flows were visible at a distance of 520 m from the cone, though most of the flow activity was confined to lava tubes.
There were some breakouts from the lava tube; a substantial breakout on 5 August fed a lava flow that traveled hundreds of meters over several hours.
During 7-8 August small amounts of material was ejected from a small vent on the N flank of the eruptive vent.
