The lava flow approaching Pahoa town remains stalled and has not advanced since 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Hawaii County Civil Defense said after an assessment Friday morning.

The leading edge of the flow is 0.6 miles upslope of Highway 130 and the Pahoa Village Road intersection.

The flow remains active behind the front with surface breakouts but it does not pose an immediate threat to the community at this time, officials said.

Smoke conditions were moderate to light with a west wind blowing the smoke in an east southeast direction through the Pahoa and lower Puna areas, Civil Defense officials reported.
