The VolcanoCamHD camera is working just fine. Any blurring of the image is caused by sustained high winds shaking the camera.

The Classic VolcanoCam remains offline. The camera's server at Johnston Ridge Observatory (JRO) is working but receiving no signal from the camera. This is probably due to a fuse inside the camera has blown. We will be unable to actually check the camera, and replace the fuse if that is the problem, until we have more favorable weather. Access to the JRO is extremely limited this time of the year. We apologize for the inconvenience.
