Kilauea Volcano's Pele USGS status report:
"Activity Summary for last 24 hours: Kilauea Volcano is active at two locations. At the summit, low ash production and elevated sulfur dioxide emissions continued from the Halema`uma`u vent. Seismic tremor levels continued elevated to several times background levels. The second DI tilt event in a week was finishing up this morning. At the east rift eruption site, lava continued to flow from vents in the east rift zone through tubes into the ocean at the Waikupanaha and Ki ocean entries."
Much more detailed information available at the web site link above; up dates there periodically.
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Wednesday, April 16, 2008 report reveals the following remains the same as last week noted in my previous post.

"SO2 gas plume crosses road near Halemaumau and low on Chain of Craters Road. Sensitive individuals should limit exposure in these areas."
The National Park Services provides additional information with a map of the area and up dates when you visit the above page for this link titled:

Wonder if Hawaii's mythical goddess Pele was really dancing or if she was feeling a bit explosive with that 4/15 income taxes filing date looming here in the U.S.? Well, it's past now, so perhaps she'll calm down.
