Earthquake swarm observed near southwest rift of Kilauea

Kilauea
October 2015PAHALA, HawaiiA small increase in earthquake activity on the southwest rift of Kīlauea near Pahala has been observed over the past few days. An interactive USGS map shows the location of the quakes, and the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory had this to say in Tuesday’s Kilauea status update:
“The increase in earthquake activity on the southwest rift of Kīlauea continues. Earthquake swarms in this area are not unusual, and have not correlated with any significant change in activity of the volcano. These deep earthquakes (20-40 km or 12-25 miles) are associated with the conduit supplying magma from the mantle hotspot to the volcano’s summit.” –Big Island News
