Breakouts have been active recently in several locations on the coastal plain. The sluggish flows in this photo were about 1.6 km (1 mile) out from the base of the pali, with a more active patch of breakouts mauka of this location. In addition, several areas of breakouts were active very close to the shoreline and ocean entry. In this photo, one of the last remaining sections of uncovered roadway in Royal Gardens subdivision is visible in the brown patch (near the white fume) in the upper right portion of the image. This is Ali`i Avenue, on a steep section of the pali.
