According to Hawaii County Civil Defense, this morning’s assessment of the June 27 lava flow from Kilauea Volcano shows that the flow front remains stalled with very little activity and has not advanced over the past 10 days.
The flow pad continues to show signs of inflation which could result in breakouts and more activity. The front remains approximately 480 feet from the Pahoa Village Road. The upslope breakouts remain approximately 0.7 to 1.5 miles above the Apa‘a Street area along the north side of the flow and are moving in a north/northeast direction.
In addition, the breakout near the transfer station remains active and is nearing Apa‘a Sreet. The active burning along the flow edges in the areas of the cemetery and above the transfer station continues and is limited to the vegetation in contact with the flow. The smoke from the active burning may be visible throughout the day however there is no brush fire threat at this time.
Smoke conditions are light with variable winds. Smoke conditions may increase in some areas and residents down wind that may be sensitive or have respiratory problems are advised to take necessary precautions and to remain indoors.
Although current flow activity has decreased, the evacuation advisory for those residents down slope of the flow will continue and residents will be kept informed of the flow status and advancement.
