Detailed Description

Lava, like this typical pāhoehoe flow on Nov. 12, 2015, continues to breakout northeast of Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō (in background) on Kīlauea Volcano. Current activity is within about 6 km (4 mi) of the vent and poses no immediate threat to Puna communities. You can hear more about Kīlauea's ongoing lava flow and other Hawaiian volcanoes during HVO's Volcano Awareness Month talks in January 2016.
