Kilauea volcano update: Lava front stalls behind barrier, activity continues further back
Monday Nov 03, 2014 19:54 PM | AUTEUR : PO
Latest update map from USGS-HVO showing widening of the flow field, with no advance of its closest point to Pahoa village.
Over the past few days, there has been no advance of the lava flow front towards residences in Pahoa, though active lava continues to break out from the margins of the flow behind its farthest reach. Luckily no residences have burned so far because of this slow-down, but locals await the seemingly inevitable pressure surge which will come from somewhere on the flow in the near future.

Prominent among other "hot topics" today, the Pahoa resident whose house is immediately in threat has constructed a 5m/15ft earth barrier to attempt to divert the lava around his house. While the legality of his action has come into question, local officials are stressing constructive dialog the unites, not divides, the community. However, as of this morning the lava has reached the barrier which still remains in place and began spreading around it. The earth barrier can be seen in the USGS photo in our previous post, as well as in the County images released this morning. ... [details]

This afternoon, the lava flow continued to move through private property and gets ever closer to the Pahoa village road. The leading edge of the flow was advancing about 10 m (11 yd) per hour this afternoon. It flow moved downslope about 125 m (136 yd) over the past 24 hours. The flow width was less than about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. ... [details]

According to the latest report, the lava flow front is now 280 m/yds from Pahoa Village Road, averaging about 10 m/yds per hour. Lava has already consumed a few small agricultural structures, and there are perhaps 10-15 residences in its direct path on both sides of the road. Residents have been placed on an "evacuation notice" without being forced to leave, so that they can see what happens to their property and hopefully bring some emotional closure to the ordeal.

Today's preliminary reports from Pahoa indicate the lava flow is only advancing around 10m/hr after having consumed a small shack on private property, and is still threatening other structures nearby. The slowing comes as lava fills a small depression in the topography, with steeper ground and faster movement rates expected ahead. Based on current projections, the lava will most likely cross Pahoa Village Road sometime tomorrow, though with lots of uncertainty as there has been no increase yet in the flow's speed. ...

Fuego volcano photos
: One of Central America's most active volcanoes, Fuego in Guatemala is in near-permanent explosive eruption with intermittent phases of increasing activity that generate lava fountains, lava flows and pyroclastic flows.
Stromboli volcano photos
: The lighthouse of the Thyrrhenian Sea - thanks to its typical, regular explosions that coined the term "strombolian activity", Stromboli is one of the most famous and photogenic volcanoes in the world.
Raung volcano photos
: One of the largest and most active volcanoes in East Java, rarely-visited and relatively unknown Raung became (in)famous during its recent eruption in 2015 when its frequent ash plumes forced the repeated closure of Bali's airport.
Bromo volcano photos
: Bromo is one of Indonesia's most visited volcanoes. It is the most active vent inside the huge Tengger caldera and erupts every few years.
