Flows continue towards ocean, have entered National Park...

Detailed Description

The flows active on the coastal plain for the last month and a half have entered Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park over the past day. These flows were just 55 meters (180 ft) within the Park boundary, and 900 meters (0.6 miles) from the ocean. The pāhoehoe breakouts at the flow front had a rough, spiny texture possibly because they were slightly cooler than more typical fluid pāhoehoe toes.
