Lava from Pu'u 'Ō'ō is still active, but not an immediate threat...

Detailed Description

Active surface flows on the northeast flank of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō on March 12, 2015. The activity is a continuation of a breakout that began on February 21, which diverted lava from the tube system and helped to starve the supply of lava to the June 27th flow front near Pāhoa. This breakout on Kīlauea is still active and has now reached 2.5 km (1.6 mi) northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, but does not pose an immediate hazard to any community. USGS photo.
