Aloha! Lasts night’s activity was very high according to the reports from our guides. There were multiple surface flows that they were able to get up to. The lava had advanced slightly eastward and slightly toward the ocean and our guests were happy with the show.
Tonight’s tour was awesome as well and our groups were able to view multiple surface breakouts and small rivers of lava. The leading edge of the flow moved slightly eastward and towards the ocean since last night. Currently the tilt meter (found on the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory website) is recording an inflation at Pu’u O’o and a deflation at Halema’uma’u.
As we left the flow field we could see how far down the flow field has advanced and it is currently about 0.7 mi away from the ocean. Being away from the flow field we could also see the many breakouts along the entire eastern part of the flow field. Overall lava activity is good, so book your tour now. Aloha!
