Lava Update April 16, 2012

Tonight we had two tours and both of them were able to safely view lava up close. The leading edge of the eastern lobe is still active and has advanced slowly. The flow field seems to be widening more than advancing to the ocean.The tilt meter, which can be found on the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory, is now showing a slight DI inflation. You can expect more lava to be seen because of this. The weather was cooperative and both tour groups were able to view a beautiful starry sky. Until next post, Aloha!
