During this morning's overflight, HVO geologists observed low levels of lava
fountaining within the fissure
8 spatter cone
and crusted lava in the spillway and channel downstream. The significance of this change is not yet clear. Eruptions can wax and wane or pause for days to weeks before returning to high levels of lava discharge. New outbreaks in the area of the active fissures
could also occur in the near future.
