Detailed Description

This short video compilation shows conditions at Kapoho Bay during a helicopter overflight on June 4, 2018, around 6:15 AM and again around 1:38 PM. By 6:15 AM, lava from fissure 8 has been entering the ocean for over seven hours. The ocean entry is about a half-mile wide and lava is building a delta a few hundred yards into the bay. The flow sends a large laze plume into the air along the coastline. In the second video, taken about seven hours later (around 1:38 PM), lava nearly fills the shallow bay.
