Fissure complex produces a Pāhoehoe flow

Fissure 21 produced a Pāhoehoe lava flow that oozed onto Kaupili Street in the Leilani Estates subdivision. Video 1 shows the flow on May 25, around 2:15 a.m. HST. Video 2 shows lava oozing over a berm on May 24, around 6:00 p.m. HST. Burning asphalt created the black smoke seen in the video as the lava flow advanced down the street.
