Kilauea volcano update: Lava flow continues to advance, but at slower rate

Saturday Dec 20, 2014 15:52 PM | DOOR: T

Kīlauea’s East Rift Zone lava flow continues to advance downslope toward the Pahoa Marketplace. This photo is of a small breakout from the edge of the inflated flow several hundred meters (yards) back from the active front. (HVO)
Kīlauea’s East Rift Zone lava flow continues to advance downslope toward the Pahoa Marketplace. This photo is of a small breakout from the edge of the inflated flow several hundred meters (yards) back from the active front. (HVO)
Advancement of the flow continued at a slower rate, compared
to earlier in the week, and the flow moved about 120 meters (130 yards) in the past 24 hours, HVO reported.
"A southern branch of the flow on this map was stalled when mapped this morning. The more northerly advancing branch was 0.9 km (0.6 miles) away from the back of the Pahoa Marketplace, measured in a straight line. A HAWAII County Civil Defense overflight this afternoon observed about 40 yards advance
over the past 12 hours suggesting further slowing.
While the flow fronts were slowing, there was abundant evidence of inflation indicating that both branches remained active." (HVO's Kilauea update)
