Ocean entry activity continues...

Lava continues to flow into the sea at the Kamokuna ocean entry. This photograph, taken from the eastern margin of the lava flow, shows the eastern ocean entry site and the lava delta that has formed there. Today, several small streams of incandescent lava could be seen spilling into the water, with occasional small explosive bursts occurring in the surf.
