New lava eruption seen at Kilauea

Hawaii, USA

June 19, 2007
Scientists on the Big Island observed a new lava eruption at Kilauea volcano's upper east rift zone Tuesday morning following another swarm of small earthquakes. The small outbreak of lava oozed from a fissure in the forest nearly four miles west of Puu Oo and eight miles southeast of the Kilauea summit. "The outbreak appeared to be a short one that had been over for at least a few hours by the time it was seen this morning. This may be related to the abrupt eastward migration of earthquake epicenters into this area noted between 3:45 and 5 p.m. yesterday. Small earthquakes continue to occur in the area at low levels."
