Detailed Description

The flow front of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow has cut a narrow swath through forest northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. The narrow lobe at the front is now inactive, with the main area of surface flows about 2km (1.2 miles) behind the end of this lobe. Some of these surface flows are slowly expanding northward into the forest, creating vegetation fires. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is in the upper left. An equivalent thermal image is shown to the right.
