Hawaii Volcano Observatory Report – Kupapaʻu Point Ocean Entry Weak, But Still Active

Using a telephoto camera lens, an HVO scientist captured this view of the Kupapaʻu Point ocean entry on the morning of August 7.


Although no lava flow activity was observed on the coastal plain near the ocean entry, small streams of lava still poured into the sea.

Zooming his camera in even more…. An up-close view of the easternmost lava streams entering the ocean.


Reminder to all lava observers: Peering through a telephoto lens is the safest way to view Kīlauea Volcano’s ocean entry.
