Hawai’i County Civil Defense was not able to conduct their Tuesday morning assessment due to bad weather conditions. However, a survey assessment is planned to be conducted later in the morning when the conditions improve.

Monday’s assessment showed that the upslope breakouts remained active. The most active and downslope breakout advanced about 150 yards in the past 24 hours and is currently located about 3.5 miles from Apa’a Street.

The breakouts that begin 3.5 miles upslope from Apa’a Street consisted of surface breakouts and breakouts along the margins of the flow pad.

Additionally, this breakout activity was not posing any threat to communities in the area on Monday.

Civil Defense and public safety personnel will continue to keep residents in the downslope areas of the flow informed on the flow status and advancement.


Pahoa Village Road remains in the process of reopening. As of Monday, Civil Defense Administrator Darryl Oliveira said that officials are aiming to reopen the road by Thanksgiving.
