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.
