Aloha! Tonight’s groups were able to safely view lava. The eastern flow that has been coming down the Pali has made it’s way to the base of the Pali and has advanced onto the coastal plains.
Rivers of lava could be seen cascading down the Royal Garden hillside. This flow is still far away from the ocean, however. The western lobe that came around the front of the eastern lobe has also advanced slightly toward the ocean and eastward. This flow is still approximately 0.7 mi away from the ocean. Overall activity is high and this is connected to the continuing DI inflation which is being recorded by the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory geologists (USGS).
