A surge of lava spews out of a rupture in the lava tube system and is heading down steep cliffs, or pali in Hawaiian. This strong flow is being supplied lava from Kilauea Volcano's Pu`u O`o Crater four miles to the northwest. The rupture was at the 1600-foot elevation about four miles northwest of Kalapana Gardens, and directly above the old Royal Gardens subdivision.
Further down the mountain I shot the rough a`a lava and chunky pahoehoe lava river, and at the 800-ft elevation I videoed the lava 'toes'.

EDIT: One week later this lava flow destroyed the last occupied home left in Royal Gardens subdivision. The story, images and video on Hawaiian Lava Daily March 2nd : http://hawaiianlavadaily.blogspot.com...
