Volcano Overflight: New Lava Delta Expanding
“Pele’s surface lava continues to breakout on the Pali,” said Tropical Visions Video photographer and videographer Mick Kalber after Paradise Helicopters’ Thursday, May 25, Kīlauea Volcano overflight.
Both pahoehoe and a‘a flows were observed, he said.
Lava has also advanced about a quarter-mile toward the ocean on the coastal flats.
Breakouts continue a considerable distance above the Pali as well, and lava continues to build a new lava delta at the Kamokuna ocean entry.
