04/25/2012 Lava Update

Aloha everyone! Flows have been active on the coastal plains. DI inflation had started late yesterday and activity had picked up since last night’s tours. Lava could be viewed in many different breakouts on the coastal plains. The eastern lobe had move tremendously to the east. A finger of Lava is moving easterly towards the Kalapana area. Lava is still a far distance away from the ocean. No ocean entries at this time or soon. The flow front had stalled out a couple days ago but had started to become active again. Also glow could be seen on the Pulama pali from different points. Could be little breakouts or sky lights over the tube system which is feeding this flow on the coastal plains. Mahalo and also check out the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory website to have a better idea of the activity. Till next time a hui hou!

This next shot is from our office in Kaimu. Glow from Pu’u O’o and the moon and all the stars.
