Although Kilauea Volcano has been erupting continuously for more than 25 years, the activity is anything but steady. From time to time, the flow of magma beneath the volcano shifts, causing old vents to close and new ones to open. From March—when lava fountains briefly appeared at the Kamoamoa Vents —until early August, most of Kilauea’s fresh lava was confined to a lava lake within Pu’u O’o crater. On the afternoon of August 3, 2011, lava broke out 700 meters to the west of Pu’u O’o, followed shortly by a partial collapse of the crater and rapid draining of the lava lake. The activity formed two lava flows: one halfway between Pu’u O’o and the Kamoamoa Fissures, and another directly south of the crater.
