Detailed Description

As of 8:30 a.m., HST, today, May 25, 2016, lava continued to flow from two breakout sites on the flanks of the Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō cone, which was shrouded by rain and steam during HVO's morning overflight. At the northern breakout (see maps at https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/kilauea/multimedia_maps.html), a new lobe of lava broke out of yesterday's active channel and was advancing to the northwest. This new lobe of lava had advanced about 950 m (0.6 mi) as of this morning. Yesterday's channel—now inactive—is visible to the right of today's flow.
