Helicopter overflight of the lava delta at Kapoho Bay

A helicopter overflight of the Kapoho Bay area on the morning of June 8, 2018, shows a flow front that is nearly a mile wide, extending south to Vacationland. Lava enters the ocean at multiple points along the flow front. The upwelling offshore suggests the presence of lava flowing on the ocean floor in that area.
