What's happening at Pu‘u ‘Ō‘ō?...

Detailed Description

On October 30, 2014, the front of Kīlauea Volcano's active lava flow stalled only about 155 m (170 yards) from Pāhoa Village Road (lower right corner). As this photo was taken on November 5, 2014, active lava, indicated by smoke from burning vegetation, continued to break out of the lava tube just upslope of the stalled flow front, threatening the Pāhoa Solid Waste Transfer Station (upper center) and other infrastructure. Today, active breakouts are about 15 km (9.5 mi) upslope of Pāhoa Village Road. USGS photo.
