~ Molten lava approaches home ~ Weak ocean entry ~

Active lava breakouts near the remaining end of Highway 130 are back-filling down towards the nearest occupied structure and were less than three-hundred feet from away at 11:00 AM this morning. If lava continues being fed to the area then it seems likely this home will be claimed by lava within days. Ron took the photo below a couple days ago and the lava on the road is cooling now, but further back towards the house lava remains actively breaking out.

Meanwhile down along the coast over a mile southwest of roads end we have day three of a new ocean entry of lava. This entry is currently quite weak appeared to be stagnating while I was there this morning, but was feebly returning to life an hour later.

I will be keeping a close eye on this flow now and report daily on any changes.
