Detailed Description

The main mode of growth of the June 27th lava flow over the past several days has been inflation (thickening) of the flow. The photos above were taken where lava crossed AP‘A‘ā Street / Cemetery Road. On October 25 (left), just a few hours after the flow crossed the road, the lava was only about 3 feet thick. Ten days later, on November 4 (right), the flow was about 12 feet thick. The cinder pile surrounding the power pole provides a sense of scale for the inflation.
