The new lava flows from Kilauea on 29 May (bigislandvideonews.com)
The new surface lava flows from the two breakouts north and northeast of Pu'u 'O'o vent on the eastern rift zone remain active. They form broad, branching channels that have been gradually enlarging the two new pahoehoe lava flow fields NW/W and SE of the cone. ...mehr

Map of the new lava flows from the 24 May breakouts
Early in the morning of 24 May (at 06:50 local time), a sudden surge in lava supply caused the main lava tube carrying the lava underground away from Pu'u 'O'o to rupture. This resulted in two so-called surface lava breakouts located about 500 m N and NE from the cone, feeding two new large surface lava flows. ...mehr

Thermal image of the lava overflow inside Kilauea's Pu'u 'O'o crater yesterday morning
The activity of the volcano remains essentially unchanged. Rising magma levels under the east rift zone briefly caused an overflow of lava that erupted from a spatter cone within the southern part of the Puʻu ʻŌʻō crater. ...mehr
