May 24, 2013 Lava Hike Update

Aloha everyone! Welcome to another addition to our daily blog. Lava activity remained elevated at this time. Currently at the summit of Kilauea, the electronic tilt meter, which measures the ground tilt of the volcano, has deflated for the moment. Deflation will occur in the next couple of days. The ocean entry has been very active at this time. Multiple entries could be seen on our tour. The most eastern entry has been the best entry at this time. About 2 acres of the Lava bench had collapsed into the ocean. This event happens quite often, but in this case this is a rare event because of the size of the area. Surface activity was also amazing. Beautiful little rivers of lava just inches away from your feet. Aloha and stay tune for our next update. Mahalo!
