Kilauea volcano update: New lava flow might be heading towards Pahoa

Wednesday Dec 03, 2014 18:09 PM | DOOR: T

The new lava lobe continues to advance and widen. As of this morning, it was only 4.3 km (2.7 miles) from Highway 130. A surge in lava supply resulted in an advance rate of 400 m per day!
At this rate it could reach Pahoa again by 12 December, if it follows the current flow path along the steepest slope to the north-northeast. If it follows another possible path, it could hit Ainaloa instead. It might even follow both paths, but it is too early to predict this.

Monday, Nov 24, 2014
To present, USGS-HVO and County of Hawai`i report that lava has reoccupied the tube system only as far as the cracks near the old geothermal well site (recognized as a clearing in the thicker forest in photographs). From there, it has spilled out and is forming a new flow lobe farther west from the previous one which stopped just short of Pahoa Village Road and that now appears to be hardening without further advance. The current front is now 5.8km/3.6mi upslope from Apa`a St measured in a straight line, which means Pahoa has escaped its most urgent threat. The county is reopening the Pahoa Village Road today, previously blocked off as the power company reenforced their poles with huge piles of rock, which they have now removed again to allow the flow of traffic. While it's possible that the new flow could turn towards the outskirts of Pahoa again, it took the previous flow 7 weeks to reach Apa`a St and it's reasonable to expect a similar timeline again, keeping in mind that another flow front may develop near the breakout site nearby Pu`u Kahauale`a and divert much of the lava that could otherwise head to Pahoa. The next several days of lava activity should give some hint of an answer to the question. Finally, it may be noteworthy that there has been increased earthquake activity south of the caldera, with a 3.6 and 3.3 felt by area residents in the past 3 days. [meer...]

Wednesday, Nov 19, 2014
A new surge of lava over the past 2-3 days is moving through and leaking from lava tubes that until recently were feeding the eruption front in Pahoa village. Prior to the surge, the lava flow's forward progress had stalled once again with the little remaining activity both widening and inflating the flow field. It remains to be seen how far this surge can move through the pre-existing lava tube towards Pahoa, having so far travelled "about 11 km (7 mi) in a straight line distance downslope of Pu`u `Ō`ō" according to the County of Hawai`i and USGS-HVO.

Wednesday, Nov 12, 2014
Yesterday, lava flowed across the fence at the Pahoa transfer staion, a recycling and waste facility at the edge of town and across the street from the first residence which burned the day before. USGS-HVO reports that lava is currently filling the low area around the center of the facility, which had already been largely dismantled and relocated. ... [meer...]

Lava eerst stroomde in de buurt op 25 oktober, met de voorkant ongeveer 50m/yds breed en 75m/yds uit de buurt van de residentie. De belangrijkste stroom ging door, en na stalling in de buurt van Pahoa dorp Rd buigpunten heeft verbreed en in de buurt van het station van overdracht. ... [meer...]
