Pagan Weekly Update issued Feb 13, 2015 10:42 Volcano Alert Level ADVISORY - Aviation Color Code YELLOW

Seismic, infrasound, and web camera data from Pagan Volcano remain temporarily unavailable. A steam plume was observed coming from the summit vent in clear satellite views over the past week.

Volcanic gas from Pagan may be noticed downwind of the volcano as a distinctive sulfurous odor. Additional information about volcanic gas and vog can be found on the web at this address: http://hvo.wr.usgs.gov/hazards/FAQ_SO2-Vog-Ash/main.html

Access to the island may be restricted by the CNMI government. Contact the EMO for the latest information.

Kilauea Daily Update issued Feb 12, 2015 09:12 Volcano Alert Level WARNING - Aviation Color Code ORANGE

Activity Summary: Kīlauea Volcano continues to erupt at its summit and from its East Rift Zone. The inactive distal tip of the June 27th lava flow remains roughly 500 m (~550 yd) from Highway 130 in the area west of the Pāhoa Fire and Police Stations. The flow has not advanced downslope in about 2 weeks, but many breakouts remain active upslope. Tiltmeters located at the summit recorded inflationary tilt in the past 24 hours, and the summit lava lake level rose slightly. There has been a minor increase in small earthquakes near the south portion of Kīlauea …

Mauna Loa Monthly Update issued Feb 11, 2015 10:41 Volcano Alert Level NORMAL - Aviation Color Code GREEN

Seismicity continued to be slightly elevated; deformation patterns suggest continuing inflation over the past month.

Monitoring data through the month of January 2015:

Seismicity: Seismicity at Mauna Loa remains elevated in several parts of the volcano. Earthquake rates on the Upper Southwest Rift Zone (Sulfur Cone) and Mokuʻāweoweo Caldera remain elevated, with rates similar to that seen in previous months. Though there were no swarms on the west flank of Mauna Loa, earthquake rates remained above background with approximately 20 earthquakes occurring in the past month. …

Mauna Kea Monthly Update issued Feb 11, 2015 10:41 Volcano Alert Level NORMAL - Aviation Color Code GREEN

No unusual deformation or seismicity was detected during the month of January 2015.

Ten deep (> 13 km) and 7 shallower earthquakes were detected beneath the volcano. Earthquakes to the north of the summit of Mauna Kea near Honoka`a are more likely associated with the load of the Island of Hawaii on the underlying crust and mantle, then to volcanic processes at Mauna Kea.

The GPS station on Mauna Kea, which is operated by the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), has not been operational since mid-October 2014.

Lo`ihi Monthly Update issued Feb 11, 2015 10:41 Volcano Alert Level UNASSIGNED - Aviation Color Code UNASSIGNED

No unusual seismicity was detected during the month of January 2015.

Lo`ihi had 5 earthquake in its vicinity in the past month. The earthquake was too small and too far outside of our seismic network to attribute them to specific process, however historically most earthquakes in the area are caused by non-volcanic processes.
