Video: Steam indicates lava is headed towards homes

This video captured by Paradise Helicopters shows steam venting from the June 27 lava flow from Pu’u O’o Crater in Volcanoes National Park.  Scientists are stating that the location of the steam indicates underground movement of lava towards the Kaohe Homesteads subdivision in Pahoa.  Consider these photographs take by the USGS in comparison to the video below.  The photos show the pad of lava as seen by the naked eye, along with the equivalent thermal view.
