Volcanic activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, and although a bit subdued, a few breakouts on the flow field were visible. The lava pond continues to bubble at its edges, and there was evidence of a recent lava flow on Pu‘u ‘O‘o crater’s floor. A couple isolated fingers of lava along the northern tree line continue to creep into the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve, but at a lower level than weeks previous. One little breakout near the middle trees area is now the distal tip, roughly 3 1/2 miles from the vent.
MAHALO NUI LOA to our pilot, Ryan Moeller, Calvin Dorn, and Paradise Helicopters for the EXCELLENT lava charter service!!! They put us into position to get the shots we do! Best in the business!!!
