Pahoa Lava Flow Stalled for Now


The Pahoa lava flow stalled out today creating a respite for local residents in process of evacuating the area. Officials stress that this does not mean they are out of danger as it will likely start flowing again in the near future.

Lava Flow Stalls but Still Not Over

CNN: Lava burns vegetation as it approaches a property boundary early on the morning of Tuesday, October 28. A lava flow from the volcano Kilauea is advancing on the community of about 950 people on Hawaii's Big Island. By early Tuesday, the flow was about 70 yards (64 meters) from the closest home and moving to the northeast at 8 to 11 yards (7-10 meters) per hour, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory said.
