Volcano Eruption Update

Just a quickie..........things may be stopping. But we won't relax just yet. Yesterday the lava river crusted over. The lava erupting from fissure 8 is significantly reduced. And the earthquakes at the summit have plunged from 30 an hour on average to zero for the past 3 hours. Yes, zero. It's been months since we've seen zero earthquakes in a 3 hour stretch. 

Not one red dot on the earthquake map! Red dots indicate earthquakes within the past 2 hours. 

And captured from Facebook......

That black snaky lava channel has been a glowing red river up until now. 

Now we wait and see what happens next. 


  1. I just checked the earthquake website and see that ther still aren't any earthquakes.

    1. It's now been several days since the last collapse event. No one knows what's going to happen next.
