Lava continues to flow at Kilauea crater

The eruption that started Dec. 20 at the Kilauea summit continued to flow into 2021.

Lava activity remained confined to Halemaumau Crater, with no seismic or deformation data to indicate that magma is moving into either of Kilauea’s rift zones, according to the latest Hawaiian Volcano Observatory observations.

Vents on the northwest side of the crater were spattering Saturday while erupting lava flowed through crusted-over channels into the lava lake, now about 82 acres in size and about 620 feet deep with a narrow black ledge around it, HVO said.
