New Lava Flow Map Shows Flow Heading Towards Ocean

This map shows recent changes to Kīlauea’s active East Rift Zone lava flow field. The area covered by the June 27th flow (which may be inactive) as of June 2 is shown in orange.

The areas covered by the recent breakouts at Puʻu ʻŌʻō as of June 2 are shown in pink, while widening and advancement of the new breakouts as mapped on June 8 is shown in red. The northern breakout is inactive. Puʻu ʻŌʻō lava flows erupted prior to June 27, 2014, are shown in gray. Puʻu ʻŌʻō is at lower left.

Webcams overnight saw no incandescence northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, supporting the possibility that the June 27th flow is no longer active. HVO scientists will continue to watch this area over the coming days – the more time that passes without active lava in this part of the flow field, the more likely it is that the supply of fresh lava to the June 27th flow has ceased. The flow from the east flank of Puʻu ʻŌʻō remains active and continues to advance southeast. The flow was 2.7 km (1.7 mi) long when mapped on June 8.
