Kīlauea volcano is not erupting. On Sunday, June 2, 2024, earthquake activity beneath the south part of Kaluapele (Kīlauea’s summit caldera) increased at approximately 12:00 p.m. HST. Earthquake activity is ongoing at 1.2–1.8 miles (2–3 km) below the surface, along with an increase in the rate of ground deformation in the summit region. Currently, there are no signs of an imminent eruption; however, conditions could change quickly.

Rates of seismicity and ground deformation beneath the East Rift Zone and Southwest Rift Zone remain low. Current activity is restricted to the summit region.

The Volcano Alert Level/Aviation Color Code for Kīlauea remains at ADVISORY/YELLOW.

The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory continues to monitor Kīlauea for any changes and will issue additional notices as needed.
