Map showing flow field changes

Detailed Description

This map shows recent changes to Kīlauea's active East Rift Zone lava flow field. The area of the flow on March 10, before shutting down near Pāhoa, is shown in pink, while widening and advancement of the flow based on satellite imagery from April 1 is shown in red. Some recent changes north of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō are not shown, as that part of the flow field was hidden from satellite view by clouds.
