During 2-8 August HVO reported that the lava lake continued to rise, fall, and spatter in Kilauea?s Overlook crater.
Webcams recorded incandescence from long-active sources within Pu'u 'O'o Crater.
The 61G lava flow, originating from a vent on Pu'u 'O'o Crater's E flank, continued to enter the ocean at Kamokuna.
Slumping of seaward portions of the delta continued, and cracks running parallel to the coastline continued to widen.
HVO noted that as recently as 28 July a small slice of the delta fell into the ocean, and warned that there was potential for larger-scale delta collapses.
