April 9, 2012 lava update

Aloha gang! You must be wondering how was the lava activity today. Well let me tell you! The activity was awesome. Lava could be easily approachable. There were many incredible lava flows. Fingers of lava was everywhere. We got our tour up to a very big lava river. A sheet of Lava approximately 60 feet wide and 200 feet long could be witnessed flowing and filling up a huge area. This is caused by inflation at the summit which had not deflate yet. Hiking time had shorten in the last few days. The eastern lobe is the closest to the ocean advancing every minute. The western lobe is very active at this time and creeping closer to the ocean also. Strong glow could be seen at Pu’u O’o vent. The guest were very very happy over the lava flows today and the tour. Book a tour now when LAVA is at its peek. Mahalo and stay tune for tomorrows post.
