Kīlauea Volcano lower East Rift Zone eruption

An overflight video from Leilani Estates this afternoon (May 6). Lava erupting from fissure 8 formed an ‘a‘ā flow, which advanced northward about 0.9 km (0.6 miles) by 10:30 a.m HST. This fissure eruption diminished around 4:00 p.m., but the lava flow continued to advance slowly for several hours (last report at about 7 p.m. HST).
