The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory (HVO) recorded around 42 small-magnitude earthquakes beneath the Mauna Loa’s upper elevations. Most of these events occurred at shallow depths of less than 5 km (~3 miles) below ground level. There were no events on Mauna Loa above magnitude 2.0. There is continued slow summit inflation, which HVO say is consistent with magma supply to the volcano's shallow storage system. Gas concentrations and fumarole temperatures remain stable. [more]
