Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Mini-Updates of Kīlauea Summit and LERZ Activity – 060802

Mini-Updates of Kīlauea Summit and Lower East Rift Zone Activity

Kilauea – 2018-06-08 13:05:32
At 2:44 AM HST, a small explosion occurred from Kīlauea’s summit. PTWC magnitude is 5.5, but shaking was equivalent to a ~M4 event. No radar observations, but satellites suggest any plume is less than 10,000 feet ASL.

Another explosion at the summit of Kīlauea


On June 6, at 4:07 p.m. HST, an explosion within Halema‘uma‘u sent an ash and gas plume to a height of about 10,000 feet above sea level. The explosion released energy equivalent to that of a magnitude-5.6 earthquake; a result of the explosion-related energy release was ground shaking felt throughout the summit area. This plume is typical of those produced by the larger explosions that have occurred at Kīlauea’s summit. [USGS-HVO]

This earthquake was associated with an ash explosion that occurred around 02:44 AM Friday, June 8th local time from Halema’uma’u crater. A modest plume may have been generated and drifted southwest with possible ashfall at downwind locations. [USGS]
