The U.S. Geological Survey released this video of an overflight video from Leilani Estates this afternoon Sunday, May 6, 2018. Lava erupting from fissure 8 formed an ‘a‘ā flow, which advanced northward about 0.9 km (0.6 miles) by 10:30 a.m.

This fissure eruption diminished around 4 p.m., but the lava flow continued to advance slowly for several hours (last report at about 7 p.m.).
