Geologists visiting the June 26 breakout today (July 13) found the front (pictured) stalled with no active lava visible. There has been no significant advancement of the flow front since July 8, and is still 2.2 km (1.4 miles) from the road. Today, the closest active surface flows were 2.4 km (1.5 miles) from the road consisting of sluggish pāhoehoe breakouts in a small area.
