Kilauea volcano update: Lava flows slow down, give Pahoa some hope

Monday Dec 22, 2014 17:44 PM | DOOR: T

The lava flow advance has further slowed down, giving Pahoa some hope it might not reach it or at least not as soon as feared.
"Since yesterday ,the leading edge of the active flow had advanced about 78 m since Saturday morning flight, and is currently about 0.6 miles (1.0 km) up slope from the intersection of Highway 130 and Pāhoa Village Rd. This number reflects an overall decrease of advancement rate during the past several days." (HVO)
