Sluggish breakout on Kīlauea's coastal plain remains active

Detailed Description

The surface breakout that started on February 10 remains active on the coastal plain just east of the main episode 61g lava flow field. The flow front, pictured here, advanced to about 300 m (0.2 miles) from the emergency access road in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, but appeared to be stalled this afternoon. However, there is still active pāhoehoe visible on the coastal plain, with the closest breakouts observed at about 500 m (0.3 miles) from the road.
