- County officials are meeting with businesses in the Pahoa Business Center (Malama Market, etc.) just to let them know what is happening upslope in order to provide them with enough time to prepare or review their response plans.
- The county will meet tomorrow in order to discuss creating a possible public lava viewing area at the abandoned transfer station on Apa’a Street.
