Slow down buddy!

Lava moving at breakouts, but not at flow front

Lava is moving into the forest at a breakout a few hundred yards upslope of the flow front. But the front of the lava flow has not advanced since Sunday, volcano scientists and Hawaii County Civil Defense officials said after a Tuesday morning overflight.

The breakout advanced about 110 yards to the northeast since Monday, according to Tuesday’s Kilauea update from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory. Other breakouts are closer to the Pu’u ‘O’o vent and midway along the flow route.
