Aloha Folks! There is still lava flowing on the flow field and tonight’s groups were able to get up close and personal to surface flows. There was a big deflation the past two days and early this morning the DI event switched to inflation. Lava was still in the area and the leading edge had advanced 75-100 yds towards the ocean. The flow coming down the Pali has also advanced further downhill. This flow may be the reason for the deflation events. The leading edge of the flow is now approximately 1/3 mi below the easternmost Kipuka of the abandoned Royal Gardens Subdivision. Until next time, Aloha!
