Kilauea (Hawai'i): (16 Nov) After 16 months of continuous activity, the Kamokuna lava entry into the ocean stopped a few days ago. It had decreased gradually over the past weeks and intermittently resumed during the past days, probably fed by remaining batches of lava in the lower tube system that fed it.
It seems that the main lava tube further upslope feeding the 61g lava flow became obstructed, forcing the lava to break out at the surface. When we visited the area yesterday evening, we witnessed a large breakout from a new vent on the upper pali, which fed multiple rapidly advancing channeled aa lava flows descending the pali into the upper coastal plain.
Two wide-spread pahoehoe lava flow branches with scattered breakouts are active in the upper half of the coastal plain above the (now inactive) Kamokuna ocean entry. It seems likely that lava will find its way to the sea again in a near future.
