Lava Continues to Flow to Ocean Creating Dangerous Lava Deltas

Lava continues to flow into the ocean at Kamokuna, with two main entry areas, both forming lava deltas. The eastern lava delta is the larger of the two, and today, a broad span of small lava streams entering the sea was creating a wide ocean entry plume.

The smaller western entry was feeding a weaker plume.

A breakout from the base of the pali, which began last week, remained active today, with scattered pāhoehoe lobes near the eastern margin of the 61g lava flow.

Fume from the lava tubes on the pali can be seen in the upper left part of the image.
