Aloha! Last night’s tour was able to get up close to some surface flows safely. The leading edge of the flow is still active on the coastal plains. Also the flow seems to be slowly moving eastward and of course towards the ocean. Lava could still be seen cascading down the hillside. Until next time, Aloha!

This chart shows us how much LAVA is flowing in our area. Green line represents Halema’uma’u and blue represents Pu’u O’o vent which is the vent that is feeding our flows here in Kalapana. It shows low activity on the chart but our guides have reported that the activity is elevated on coastal plains. Activity is on the eastern part of the flow field.
