June 27,2012 lava update

Aloha everyone! Lava had advance a little in the past day. Our tours got up to some nice surface breakouts about 1/2 mile from the Royal Gardens Pali. This flow is the most eastern flow of the flow field. Both tours stayed at the flow for over an hour and watched it move over 30 to 40 feet and watched it fill in a depression in the earth. The flows on the Pali were very visible. The eastern flow had some volume to it. There hundreds of breakouts on the Pali. We also could see another breakout just maybe 1/2 mile south of the eastern breakout. That breakout also had some volume to it. We are experiencing deflation right now but are expecting inflation in the next couple hours. Aloha and enjoy. Stay tune for more updates.
