The active Kahauale‘a 2 flow north of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō is shown in shades of red, with light red showing the flow area on August 16, and bright red showing flow expansion since then. Older lava flows are labeled with the years in which they were active. Episodes 1-48b flows (1983-1986) are shown in gray; episodes 48c-49 flows (1986-1992) are pale yellow; episodes 50-55 flows (1992-2007) are tan; and episodes 58-60 flows (2007-2011) are pale orange.
