Quakes were subdued but one good location success from the biggest quakes.
USGS vulcanologists report an increase in lava flowing from Kilauea East Rift.
Aoba has now been apparently completely abandoned, including the previously ash free East Aoba.
Ashfall from Manaro has been steadily increasing since 20 June and Aoba is now blanketed in smothering ash.
A significant supermoon and lunar eclipse early on 28 July along with residual solar conditions could create a big Southern Hemisphere quake and increased Pacific volcanic activity.
A forecast map for 28 July will be posted soon.
