Two new breakouts at Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō, but new flows remain close to cone...

Detailed Description

Two new breakouts at Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō began this morning just before 7:00 a.m., HST. The larger of the two breakouts, shown here, originated on the northeast flank of the cone, at the site of the vent for the ongoing June 27th lava flow. This breakout point fed a vigorous channelized flow that extended about 1 km (0.6 miles). This lava flow had not extended beyond the existing Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō flow field at the time this photo was taken (8:30 a.m., HST).
