Lava Report: Pele Creeps Forward

Pele is on the move again, but not very quickly.  After over a week of spreading and back-filling, the lava is once again moving downslope on 25=yard-wide front.  But according to a Civil Defense report at 7:30 this morning, the flow has only moved 15 yards downhill. The leading edge is still .6 miles from Highway 130 and about 700 yards from Pahoa Marketplace.  The flow has been angling gradually east-northeastward from the predicted path of steepest descent, in the direction of the new Pahoa police and fire stations, but both the stations and Pahoa Market Place remain within it’s possible path.
