Eruptive activity continues on Kilauea’s east rift zone, as a number of larger breakouts were observed on the flow field, probably in response to the recent inflation at the summit. Lava intrusion into the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve is minimal, and most breakouts were away from the vicinity of the tree line. And, in place of the skylight high on Pu‘u ‘O‘o’s north flank, now sits a new hornito!
Mahalo nui loa to our pilot, Ryan Moeller, Calvin Dorn, and Paradise Helicopters for the EXCELLENT charter service!!! : )
