Detailed Description

Just a few minutes after the initial lava cascades began, a large section of the pāhoehoe crust broke away, exposing the molten center of the flow. The lava quickly poured from the flow as it filled the crack in the ground. This surface flow near the base of the pali is fed by the episode 61g breakouts that burned and covered most of a large kipuka over the past few weeks, with a few remnants visible on the pali in the background.
