Map showing flow field changes

April 9, 2015
This map shows recent changes to Kīlauea's active East Rift Zone lava flow field. The area of the flow on April 3 is shown in pink, while widening and advancement of the flow as of April 9 is shown in red. We were not able to map some parts of the flow field with breakouts today due to poor weather, and these areas are denoted in boxes. Neither area has changed significantly since our previous mapping. See the map posted on April 1 to see the entire June 27th lava flow field and location of Pāhoa.
