Breakout Near Kalapana

Image: Breakout Near Kalapana

Detailed Description

The breakout was from the side of the lava tube feeding the Puhi-o-Kalaikini ocean entry a few hundred meters (yards) upslope from where the tube crosses Highway 130. The photo is taken from the crest of the tube, which forms a low ridge snaking through the flow field in this area. A portion of the breakout point is in the foreground, and the flow extends to the smoking kipuka in the background.
