A firehose of lava continues to pour into the sea at the Kamokuna ocean entry, sending a plume of steam, hydrochloric acid, and glass particles into the air and drifting downwind.
Offshore, lava entering the sea also produces plumes of hot, discolored water.
The circular area of dark water in front of the entry is a region of cooler water between the split plumes of hotter water.
A thermal image shows the two plumes of hot water extending out from the ocean entry point.

Puʻu ʻŌʻō started as a cinder and spatter cone in the 1980s, but over the past 30 years flank vents on the cone have produced stacks of lava flows, creating a broad shield around the cone.
A lava pond has been present in a small pit in the western portion of Puʻu ʻŌʻō Crater for nearly two years.
