LavaTalk: September 14, 2014 update on Kilauea’s lava flow

This morning’s assessment shows the surface lava flow continues in a North direction. The flow has advanced about 150 yards since Saturday (Sept 13). The flow is 0.2 mile of the Kaohe Homesteads boundry. Railroad Avenue and Beach Road are being prepared for use should the lava flow cross Hwy 130.

As of Friday afternoon, September 12, 2014, the most distal front of the June 27th lava flow had reached a straight-line distance of 14.9 km (9.3 miles) from the source vent on the northeast flank of the Puʻu ʻŌʻō cone. The flow has continued in the northeast direction that it assumed in the middle of the week and is now only 171 meters (0.1 miles) from the boundary of the Kaohe Homesteads community. The flow is still within thick forest, so that dense plumes of smoke are created as vegetation is consumed. Small breakouts (visible as plumes in the middle distance) are also active closer to Puʻu ʻŌʻō, roughly midway along the length of the June 27th flow. Photo courtesy of USGS/HVO
