The active lava flow on Kīlauea Volcano's south flank crossed the emergency access road in Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park this afternoon around 3:20 p.m., HST, providing wonderful lava-viewing experiences for Park visitors. A section of the road can be seen here, with fume from the active lava tube in the far distance behind it, and the active flow front in the foreground. The flow front continued to advance, and was less than 100 meters (yards) from the ocean a few hours later (when this photo was taken). The lava flow reached the ocean about 01:15 a.m. July 26.

The leading tip of the flow has moved only 40 m (130 feet) since yesterday's mapping and the lava activity at the tip was still very weak. The leading lava lobe had a dull surface and rough texture suggesting that it may have cooled somewhat within the flow interior. Photo taken Sunday, July 10, 2016 courtesy of USGS/HVO
