Flows heading north of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō

Detailed Description

The Kahauale`a II flow began as a breakout on the east rim of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō crater on May 6, and has advanced northward towards the forest. Today, slowly moving pāhoehoe lobes (light colored flows in this image) were burning moss and lichen on older Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō ‘A‘ā flows and approaching the forest boundary. Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone is obscured by thick clouds in this photo.
