Both Tilt-meter stations inflated for most of July 26 before breaking into deflation late in the day,
1825 at Uwekahuna and 1911 at Pu`u `O`o. This deflation started a deflation-inflation-deflation
(DID) event. Sharp inflation started at Uwekahuna at 0729 July 27, accompanied by sharply
increased seismicity from below the caldera. Pu`u `O`o began a steep inflation at 0835.
Inflation ended at Uwekahuna at 0941 after gaining 6.9 microradians.
It ended at Pu`u `O`o at 1406 after netting 11 microradians.
Both areas deflated rapidly following the inflation, and the deflations continue this morning
though at a much lower rate than during yesterday.

The big news this morning at Kilauea is a deflation- inflation-deflation (DID) event that took
place yesterday morning (see tilt plot below) and resulted in increased surface activity at
the PKK shield and several other places.
Now, here are some photos from the past week.
What more to come, we just have to wait and see.

Many streams of lava pour into water off northeastern side of eastern Banana delta. 05:16, July 27th
View similar to that at 0516 but after activity was waned.
Note that nearest part of delta has no lava spilling from it as at 0516. 05:40, July 27th
Interplay of water and lava streams as sun comes up. 05:56, July 26th.
Crashing surf provides tough job for lava to build the delta larger. 05:50, July 15th.
