LavaTalk: September 26, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

The leading surface lava flow has remained inactive and not advanced since yesterday. The upslope breakout flows have slowed and advanced 35 yards since yesterday.

This map uses satellite imagery acquired in March 2014 (provided by Digital Globe) as a base image to show the area around the front of the June 27th lava flow. The flow front closest to the transfer station was inactive, but small, sluggish breakouts were scattered across the surface of the flow upslope from the stalled front. The most active breakout was advancing northeast from the north margin of the flow. Because the flow has not been advancing at its leading edge, we do not project its advance at this time.

LavaTalk: September 25, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

The leading surface lava flow has remained inactive and not advanced since yesterday. The upslope breakout flow is heading in a Northeast direction and advanced 70 yards since yesterday. The Lava flow update meeting at 6:30 p.m. tonight at Pahoa High School will be broadcast live by Hawaii 24/7.

The leading edge of the June 27th flow stalled over the weekend, but active breakouts persist near the flow front, a short distance behind this stalled front. Today, lava was slowly advancing on a different front, along the north margin of the flow. The burn scar from a brush fire triggered by the lava this weekend covers much of the lower portion of the photograph. Photo courtesy of USGS/HVO

LavaTalk: September 24, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

This morning’s assessment shows the leading surface lava flow is slow and has not advanced since yesterday. A breakout on the North side of the flow has advanced 100 yards since yesterday but remains uphill of the leading edge of the flow.
