- Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator Darryl Oliveira corrected some misinformation during Thursday night’s public lava flow meeting in Pahoa.
- Highway 130 was not shut down on Thursday, as was rumored. Oliveira did say the closure of Highway 130 could provide for the first lav viewing opportunity for the public, although logistics for that idea are still being discussed.
- Oliveira says the discussion between the county and the National Park Service is ongoing regarding managing access to the Chain of Crater Road emergency route.
- Gas tanks at the former Gas N Go location in Pahoa have been removed, according to documents from the State Department of Health. Mitigation has also been done on some of the soil that may have had oil on it.
