Aloha! The lava is the closest its been to the sea since early January 2012. The leading edge of the eastern lobe is advancing toward Kalapana as of now. The lava flow front is just a mere 1/2 mi away from hitting the ocean. Surface flows and outbreaks were also view-able on the Pulama Pali near the newly formed lava tube Currently the Tilt meter is reading DI Inflation so the volcano is alive and pumping lets hope the volume continues and we can once again have an ocean entry!
