7-22-11 Pu’u O’o Vent

Aloha,

This composite of two images taken by the USGS show how lava has nearly filled both the Puka Nui and MLK pits. Both were already nearly filled by the July 2007 events. The area surrounding these pits and at the south base of Pu’u O’o are very dangerous shelly Pahoehoe. The pockets are very deep. Up to 5′ and they will be very hot too. Stay away!

Aloha,
