HAWAII VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK – The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has released a new map charting the activity on the 61g lava flow field.
As the lava flow continues to erupt from Puʻu ʻŌʻō vent on the East Rift Zone of Kilauea volcano, surface flows remain active – both near Puʻu ʻŌʻō as well on the coastal plain.
The episode 61g flow continues to enter the ocean at Kamokuna, where the lava “fire hose” is still pouring into the sea.
Some of the new lava breakouts are within the boundary of the Hawaii volcanoes National Park. Other breakouts are on private property, although appear headed to cross back into National Park lands if the activity persists.
The new surface breakouts prompted a Hawaii County Civil Defense reminder on Friday.
These lava flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time, scientists say.
