Kahauale‘a 2 flow still active northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō...

Detailed Description

View of the flow front of the Kahauale‘a 2 flow, looking west. The flow front has focused into a new lobe that is slowly migrating through thick forest, triggering scattered forest fires. The smoke from these fires seems to be "seeding" the cloud above it. The active flow front was 7.4 km (4.6 miles) northeast of the vent on Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō. Mauna Loa can be seen in the distance.
