Breakout above pali remains active...

The breakout that began early last week remains active. On today's overflight, a broad area of active pāhoehoe flows was mapped, with the farthest makai lobe (lower left) just touching the top of Royal Gardens subdivision, near the buried intersection of Warrior and `Ekaha streets. When these flows began last week there were two separate breakouts, but the western breakout is now inactive. In the bottom center of this thermal image there is a faint line of elevated temperatures representing the recent lava tube.
