By Star-Advertiser staff

POSTED:


The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory released new pictures of lava entering the ocean at Kupapau Point.

The photos taken last week show the lava continuing to reach the ocean even though surface flows are no longer visible.

A wispy gas plume rises as the lava drops into the sea.

Scientists say new breakout flows is burning small patches of forest north of Puu Oo vent.

One of the recent breakout flows to the south has reached the halfway point between the pali and the coast.
