Active pahoehoe (smooth lava) fed by a lava tube originating at Puu Oo crater migrated downslope within what's left of the Royal Gardens subdivision during the past week. The flow, outlined by the red dotted line, center top of the photo, is running along a forested area and has started brush fires. An occupied orange-roofed house is in the center of the photo.
