Breakouts continue northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō in three main areas: 1) at the northern base of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone, 2) north of Pu‘u Kahauale‘a and 3) about 6 km (4 miles) northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. This photograph looks east and shows the breakout about 6 km from Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. This breakout consists of several narrow lobes that have expanded the June 27th lava flow margin by a minor amount, with a small amount of vegetation burning.
