Breakouts persist upslope of stalled flow front

Detailed Description

The leading tip of the June 27th flow remains stalled, but breakouts persist upslope of the stalled tip. Over the past few days, summit deflation has led to a reduction in overall surface activity on the June 27th flow, particularly in the upslope portion of the flow field near Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. In this photo, a recent small breakout (light colored area) has reached the flow boundary, triggering a small brush fire.
