COURTESY HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY
Lava from Kilauea volcano continues to flow through tubes originating at the east rift eruption site on the Big Island and is entering the ocean west of Kalapana. In this image Friday, points of fume marked the path of the lava tube through Royal Gardens subdivision - the forested area in the top center of the photograph - and across the coastal plain to the sea. The ocean entry point produced a vigorous plume yesterday, fed by small littoral explosions. A sediment plume in the ocean is visible emanating from the entry. The lava viewing area is in the lower right corner of the photograph.
