In Hawaii, vigilance is maintained in Kilauea, although its alert level remains at Normal and the aviation code at green.
Between November 30 and December 2, several hundred earthquakes occurred 1-4 km below the summit of Kīlauea and the upper East Rift Zone.
On December 2, a transient increase in ground deformation resulted in an uplift of about 8 cm of the caldera floor. That was about 4 months of lifting in just 4 hours.
After a magnitude 3.1 earthquake on December 2 at 6 p.m. HST, several rockfalls occurred along the scree slope, and impacted the summit lake of Halema'uma'u, causing brief color changes localized by the webcam to the surface.
The water lake at the bottom of Halema'uma'u continues to slowly expand and deepen.
Monitoring data from the Kīlauea summit region indicated that a small injection of magma penetrated below the volcano's surface. Although the magma did not reach the surface, this event demonstrated that the magma continues to fill the volcano's storage system.
