Detailed Description

Lava entering the ocean at Kamokuna has formed a shelf-like delta that extends seaward along the older sea cliff. The active delta is now just over 16 acres in size. The FEMA emergency access road through Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park ends where it was cut by the episode 61g lava flow. The road continues on the other side where it is visible as a faint diagonal line at upper right. The view is to the west.
