Aloha! Tonight we were able to safely get up to some surface flow to view. Multiple breakouts were seen, as well as some small, short lived rivers of lava.

The leading edge of the flow field has advanced to within approximately 0.5 mi away from the ocean. Up on the Pali, the surface flow that came down last week is still visible. This flow has also advanced along the coastal plains. The tilt meter has recorded a DI deflation event, but this deflation is small if compared to the big DI inflation of the past week.

Until next time, Aloha!
