(BIVN) – Channelized breakouts were active on the pali Thursday, feeding a small ‘a‘ā flow moving through the remains of a kipuka.
The USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says the episode 61g flow is still active. A field visit confirmed surface lava flow activity persists on the upper portion of the flow field, on the pali, and in limited areas of the coastal plain.
The USGS scientists returned with photos and videos, showing the lava flowing downhill.
These lava flows pose no threat to nearby communities at this time, the scientists say. The ocean entry has been inactive since late November.
