This interactive map contains important information for Lower East Rift Zone residents—lava flows, flow fronts, road closures, road blocks, mandatory evacuation areas, fissure locations, evacuation routes, power outage areas, property boundaries, and most importantly, an aerial basemap.

Jim Kirkpatrick created the map using data from the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.

Data is updated daily. Big Island Now will update this map daily.
