Detailed Description

Lava continues to enter the ocean at the Kamokuna ocean entry with many small lava streams near the front of the delta. On August 19, there was a breakout approximately 120 m (394 ft) away from the edge of the sea cliff that lasted for approximately 9.5 hours. This breakout (upper center) cascaded over the cliff and onto the delta, producing a small ‘A‘ā flow seen on the western (left) side of the delta. Large cracks, some of which span the entire delta, continue to highlight instability and the possibility of a collapse.
