Kilauea volcano update: Lava slows, misses first homes for now

HVO issued the 4th warning status update tonight:

"Between September 10 and 12, the June 27th flow advanced north-northeastward at an average rate of 250 m/day (820 ft/day). By the afternoon of September 12, the flow had advanced approximately 14.9 km (9.3 miles) straight-line distance from the vent, or to within 170 m (560 ft) of the boundary between the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve and the northwest corner of Kaohe Homesteads. At the average rate of advancement of 250 m/day (820 ft/day) since September 10, we project that lava could flow from its current location into the northwest part of Kaohe Homesteads within a day, and to the Pāhoa Village Road (government road) in Pāhoa within 20 days" if there are no major changes.

As seen in the photograph and maps accompanying HVO's newest release, the lava flow is now at the same elevation as the corner of Kaohe Homesteads, missing it by 170 m (560 ft) and expected to move away downhill. These uphill homes seem to have been spared for now, but as the flow travels further downhill it's likely to come closer to other houses, with the district of Puna's biggest village and highway looming 3.1mi (5.0km) below. For now, it's a tempered bit of good news.

The slowing of the flow's advance has led to an adjustment in the official estimate for an impact on Pahoa village within 20 days. This could also be helpful, since the longer it takes, the bigger the chance the flow will be disrupted somehow. The June 27 flow hasn't shown an inclination to stop so far, if lava flows can be said to have personality... and it seems likely that the flow will speed up again within a few days in a natural cycle. Just as the village residents, we have no choice but to anxiously watch & wait.

Lava flows continue to advance downhill through the jungle on a path that will miss Kaohe Homesteads, having first entered and overtopped several large ground cracks on Kilauea volcano's east rift zone. The farthest lava front is now 13.3 km (8.3 miles) from the vent and 1.2 km (0.7 miles) from the east boundary of the Wao Kele o Puna Forest Reserve, and moving northeast parallel to the boundary. ...
