Kilauea volcano (Hawai'i): lava flows descending on Pulama Pali June 2016

Our friend and filmmaker Michael Dalton (Volcanic Odysseys) is currently on Hawai'i and sent us some images of the new lava flows advancing SE fro Pu'u 'O'o, reaching Pulama Pali on 29 June 2016.
"Amazing day yesterday on the Pali, very spectacular and at times fast moving flows. We caught some incredible surges. The flow with the burning trees had to be moving close to 1ft a second during the fast surges that last 10 minutes or so."
