Officials are still monitoring lava igniting from Kilauea Volcano

LNH, Nov 6, 2014

As per reports confirmed by volcanologists, the lava from Kilauea Volcano continues to flow, but the cooling at its front matched with sluggish upslope breakouts may indicate some relief for Pahoa Village residents.

Inflation and small breakouts continued along the June 27 lava flow, which remained stalled 170 yards from Pahoa Village Road on Wednesday.

Steve Brantley, Hawaiian Volcano Observatory acting scientist-in-charge, said the tip of the flow was relatively cool and was solidifying, and the upper-region breakouts were not advancing in a critical way.

About 380 yards behind the front, an active stretch of lava 650 yards long is inflating, or filling with fresh lava. In some spots the lava is growing as high as 12 feet.

Hawaii County Civil Defense Administrator Darryl Oliveira said the system is still active, but the cooling of the front of the flow and the sluggish upslope breakouts allow “the community some time to breathe.”
On Wednesday, Public Works Director Warren Lee said the spread of invasive species and possible harm to endangered nene were cited in an environmental review for constructing an emergency access route along a lava-covered section of Chain of Craters Road.  But the concerns will not affect construction, he said.

The review, released Tuesday, says a potential impact is the spread of invasive species, with pests such as little fire ants and coqui frogs possibly hitching rides on vehicles from Puna. Th… MORE
