6-12-10 Puu Oo New Vent

New vent forming on the inner east wall of Pu’u’ O’o vent. Puu Oo’s east spillway is starting to slump in the area. This is how the big vent at Halemaumau started 2+ years ago. Of course this on a much smaller scale. The area beneath there must be very hollowed out from the flow heading to the TEB area. I remember it starting to heat up prior to the July 2007 event. Wonder if it will cave in soon?

Update 6-17-10 Vent has been filling Puu Oo with steam since this post.
