This is a Civil Defense Message for Saturday, June 16 at 3 pm.

Civil Defense Authorities are advising people that official sources of information regarding the current East Rift Zone Eruption are obtained from agencies responsible for monitoring the volcano. Be aware of posters who speculate on the movement of active lava flows. This information has not been supported by official observations.  Radio messages from the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency, along with information on official government websites and social media platforms will continue to relay accurate and current eruption information. We encourage you to only act on officially released information

There is no immediate threat at this time. Hawaiian Volcano Observatory continues to closely monitor the eruption and works hand in hand with the Hawaii Civil Defense Agency to provide updates.

You will be notified of any changes that will affect your safety.
