May 19, 2012 Lava Update

Aloha everyone! We were able to get up close and personal to lava tonight, while being safe of course. Surface flows were active and multiple breakouts were seen. The flows of the leading edge are approximately 0.7 mi away from the ocean.

The eastern flow that came down the east side of the Royal Gardens Subdivision has advanced approximately .25 mi down onto the coastal plains. As darkness set in this flow could be seen more and more. Tonight the weather was also cooperative. Overall activity is high due to the inflation from the past few days.

Till the next blog, Aloha!
