Detailed Description

The June 27th lava flow remains active in and upslope from Pāhoa. Yesterday, the tip of the flow was stalled about 155 meters (170 yards) from Pāhoa Village Road, which crosses the photo at lower right. A few small toes of pasty lava continue to leak from the sides of the flow just upslope from the front today. A more vigorous flow was burning through forest along the north side of the stalled front just below the Pāhoa cemetery (the burning forest closest to Pāhoa Village Road). This may develop into a new front. Other breakouts even farther upslope were also moving through vegetation and producing smoke plumes.
