June 29, 2012 Tour/Lava update

Aloha Folks! Tonight we had a tour go out and they were able to safely view some nice surface flows. The weather was cooperative and our group was able to stay dry. The leading edge of the flow is still approximately 0.5 mi away from the ocean. There are multiple surface flows coming down the Pali. One is coming down the Royal Gardens subdivision in the area that Jack Thompson’s house was. His home was taken on March 2, 2012. Another surface breakout is coming down the Pali right through the two kipukas that are the furthest east remaining kipukas of the Royal Gardens subdivision. This flow has just recently reached the base of the Pali. Overall activity is good, so book your tour to see lava, and feel the heat. Until next time, Aloha!
