 Observers on a Civil Defense overflight this morning reported that the inactive flow tip remains stalled with scattered breakouts active on both margins of the flow upslope of the tip. The small breakout on the south margin of the flow and roughly 600 yd upslope of the stalled tip remains sluggish, and has not advanced since Monday morning. Webcam views over the past day showed continued activity at the breakout about 3 km (2 miles) northeast of Pu?u ?O?o at the forest boundary.
