Halema‘uma‘u lava lake level continues to drop

This video of Halema‘uma‘u lava lake from this evening shows the agitated lake surface caused by intemittent rock falls. Falling rocks are common since the lava lake level has dropped quickly, and exposed the walls. Yesterday the lake level was about 220 m (240 yards) below the crater rim and it continues to drop.
