Activity Summary: The summit eruption of Kilauea volcano, within Halema‘uma‘u crater, continued over the past 24 hours. All recent lava activity has been confined to the crater, and current data indicate that this scenario is likely to continue. No significant changes have been noted at the summit or in either rift zone.

Halema‘uma‘u Lava Lake Observations: Eruption of lava from the Halema‘uma‘u western vent into the active lava lake, and weak ooze-outs along the northern crater floor, have continued over the past 24 hours. Overflight measurements on June 17, 2022, indicated that the crater floor had seen a total rise of about 120 meters (394 feet) and that 93 million cubic meters (24 billion gallons) of lava had been effused since the beginning of this eruption on September 29, 2021.
