Hawaii's volcano eruption appears to have gathered energy after lava fountains from a fissure spurted 200ft in the air.
Lava from Fissure 8 continues to flow through the well-established channel to the ocean at Kapoho with occasional, potentially dangerous overflows.
An explosion at Kilauea's summit led to an immediate drop in seismicity levels but they soon started to increase again and the inward collapse of the volcano’s rim and walls continues in response to ongoing subsidence.
Sulphur dioxide emissions from the volcano have dropped to levels that are about half those measured prior to the onset of the current episode of eruptive activity.
This gas and small amounts of ash are being blown downwind, with small bursts of ash and gas accompanying intermittent explosive activity.
