The crater floor of Pu'u'O'o collapsed yesterday as lava withdrew from that area. I just missed this event as I had looked at the webcam less than an hour before!
Hopefully this will shift the eruption away from threatening more Kalapana homes... A great write-up here...

Also, just found a video of the Pu'u'O'o collapse on Youtube...check it out!

UPDATE 3-21 Eruption is now paused. Long pauses are often followed by major changes in the eruption.

Just a quick update, still nothing major going on in Hawaii. Pu'U'O'o crater is slowly filling up again, and has a neat perched lava lake.

Keep in eye on the Pu'U'O'o webcam...I think something interesting is going to happen there soon, the crater floor and lava lake are bulging upwards.

The lava lake is still uplifting, and lava has started to flow over the western rim of the crater.
They have some new webcams:

The crater floor collapsed again! And I missed seeing it by a few hours again!

It collapsed because of a new fissure on the flank of Pu'U'O'o....

The crater has filled up already and has been overflowing. There is some danger to Kalpana Gardens again if the eastern flow continues
Here's a link to the webcam on the east side

After dodging the lava flows for over 30 years, the last occupied home in the Royal Gardens has finally succumbed to the lava....

The eruption has been pretty stable over the last year but now the lava is moving (slowly) in an interesting direction.

The Pu`u `O`o eruption continued without much change. Spatter cones on the floor of Pu`u `O`o crater displayed persistent bright glow; the southwest spatter cone erupted another short lava flow around 6 am yesterday morning (third in a two-day period) and the southwest spatter erupted a longer flow between 10 am and noon yesterday. The northeast spatter cone continued to feed the Kahauale`a 2 lava flow, which extends 6.3 km (3.9 mi) northeast of Pu`u `O`o (per 12/26 mapping); the new beakout from the upper Kahauale`a 2 lava tube appeared stalled but inclement weather has prevented many webcam views of this area. When weather permits, distant views of the flow front from the PNcam and R3cam (working intermittently) showed small breakouts and burning forest in several spots.
