Detailed Description

The Kahauale‘a 2 lava flow, as of April 18, 2014, is shown in pink, with a yellow line indicating the active lava tube.

An updated map is posted at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/multimedia_maps.html after every Hawaiian Volcano Observatory overflight of the flow.
