Scattered breakouts remain active northeast of Puʻu ʻŌʻō on the June 27th lava flow, but have not advanced significantly over the past month. This photo shows the farthest reach of active lava on the flow field today, which was about 8 km (5 miles) northeast of the vent on Puʻu ʻŌʻō. Minor brush fires were active where lava was entering forest. Photo taken Friday, June 19, 2015 courtesy of USGS/HVO

This 1891 map shows much of the saddle between Mauna Kea (at top of map) and Mauna Loa. Lava flows depicted as black irregular shapes in the lower half of the map were erupted from Mauna Loa, with labeled ages ranging from “ancient” to 1881. The Mauna Kea branch of the 1880–1881 lava flow, visible as a small, thumb-shaped flow at the bottom center of the map, sits atop the much larger 1855–1856 lava flow that also threatened Hilo. To see details of this extraordinary map, go to http://ags.hawaii.gov/survey/map-search/, enter "1718" in the "Registered Map No." box, and click "Search" to open the full resolution map.
