The flow front remains stalled, but the flow continues to fatten up behind the front. Civil Defense reports ” Additional breakouts upslope of the flow front”  but says “those breakouts currently do not present with an immediate threat to area residents.  The upslope breakouts are located approximately .7 to 1.5 miles above the Apa’a Street area and along the north side of the flow and moving in a north/northeast direction.”

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has not filed a report yet this morning.  Last night, it noted,  “the most significant activity was a small finger of lava advancing downslope along the north edge of the private property that the flow entered last week.” As of  five o’clock last night, that flow  was about175 yards behind the stalled front and  was advancing at a rate of  about 11 yards per hour since Monday morning. ”
