Breakout from episode 61g vent...

A breakout started from the episode 61g vent on the east flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō yesterday morning (Monday, November 21) at around 08:40 AM. The breakout sent lava flows south and northeast, and these flows were still active as of Tuesday afternoon (November 22). This image, captured at 2:10 PM today, is from a webcam on Pu‘u Halulu that looks southwest toward Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō (background). The light colored lava extending into the foreground is the more-active northeast branch of the breakout. This breakout poses no threat to nearby communities.
