Detailed Description

The two breakouts that began at Pu'u 'Ō'ō on May 24 are still active. This morning, the active portions of both flows remained relatively short, extending no more than 1 km (0.6 miles) from their breakout points. The eastern breakout, shown here, was developing a lava tube. A collapse in the roof of the tube provided a view of the lava stream. This lava was feeding small breakouts downslope, including the channelized breakout shown here.
