Puna News–HVO’s Morning Lava Report

A Civil Defense overflight this morning confirmed little to no change at the front of the June 27th lava flow. Surface lava, however, remains active several hundred meters (yards) upslope, where a breakout was advancing into forest along the north edge of the flow. This breakout advanced about 100 m (110 yards) since yesterday morning and was moving in a northeasterly direction.

Breakouts also remain active closer to Pu`u `O`o, roughly midway along the length of the June 27th flow. None of these breakouts by itself has been very vigorous, but together they compose a significant portion of the total flow volume. Some of these breakouts are also producing smoke plumes as they creep into the forest along both the north and south edges of the flow.
