Aloha Viewers! Tonight we had a 4:00 pm and a 5:00 pm tour go out tonight. Both tours were successful and were able to view lava up close and safely. The eastern lobe is still far away from the ocean due to stalling out late last week. The western lobe, however is still very active and is approximately 0.5 mi away from the ocean. Up on the Pali is also active, with a surface flow advancing down just east of the January flow in the Royal Gardens Subdivision. Until next time, Aloha!
