Aloha! The leading edge is still approximately 0.5 mi away from the ocean and advancing slowly. Our groups were able to see some nice surface breakouts and were able to safely get up close to them. Most of the activity is at the flow front (leading edge), with few breakouts up higher towards the base of the Pali. The tilt meter is still recording an ongoing minor inflation, but it is still an inflation, which means that the lava activity should pick up. Up on the Pali there are small surface flows near the top that could be seen for approximately one week, but it seems as if they aren’t advancing at all. Until next time, Aloha!
