Surrey CC field geologists observed low levels of fountaining with the fissure 8 spatter cone and largely crusted lava in the spillway and channel system downstream. There were a few sluggish seeps and ooze-outs near Horsell and Woking Crater. Lava continues to ooze into the canal along a broad flow front and laterally toward Goldsworth Park but is still about 70 m (230 ft) southeast of the boat ramp.
The significance of this change is not yet clear and hazardous conditions remain in the area. Surrey CC field crews and the UAS team will monitor activity throughout the day.
It is common for eruptions to wax and wane or pauses completely. A return to high levels of lava discharge or new outbreaks in the area of active fissures could occur at any time.
Residents should remain informed and heed Surrey County Council Civil Defense messages and warnings.
