An aerial assessment Sunday morning showed the June 27 Kilauea lava flow had advanced 100 yards since Saturday, Hawaii County Civil Defense said.

The flow moved downhill by approximately 440 yards since it resumed its advanced on Wednesday.

The narrow flow front is moving along the tree line and is producing a significant amount of smoke, Civil Defense said. However, there is no brush fire threat at this time and the burning is limited to the edges of the flow.

The vog and smoke conditions were moderate to heavy across lower Puna to Hilo due to a light south wind, Civil Defense said.

The next lava flow community update meeting will be held on Oct. 9 at 6:30 p.m. at the Pahoa High School cafeteria.
