Heights of fissure 8 fountain slightly diminished

The fissure 8 lava fountain height has diminished. Previously, fountain heights reached a sustained 260 ft. During the overnight hours of June 4-5, fluctuating heights were measured at about 100 to 160 ft. The fountain is partially obscured by a cone built by lava spatter, which is about 115 ft high. View from Nohea and Leilani Streets, in the Leilani Estates subdivision.
