HVO downgrades Kilauea volcano alert from warning to watch level

The Kilauea June 27th Lava Flow field near Pahoa has been declared inactive, surface flows remain within four miles of Pu‘u ‘O‘o vent. HVO scientists say it would be at least months before lava could get to within a mile of homes or infrastructure.

Breakouts are active in three general areas near Puʻu ʻŌʻō: at the northern base of Puʻu ʻŌʻō, north Kahaualeʻa, and about 6 km (4 mi) northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō. The distal breakout and the breakout north of Kahaualeʻa are both burning forest. There is no eruptive activity downslope from the distal breakout (nothing active near Pāhoa).
