The report today voiced concern for the lava flow taking over the main highway.  If it does it could take weeks to clear once cool.  Tourists are still venturing up to the summit as the flow is in only a few streams, however, there is still the caution regarding the gases. 

This must be Mama Pele's gift for the new year.  New land. Mahalo nui.

Mauna Loa’s lava flow is growing closer to one of Hawaii’s main roads.  If it crosses it getting around the island will be hampered until they can open it.

Mauna Loa is showing no signs of stopping.  Hawaii's main road will likely see the lava flow.

Mauna Loa is no longer erupting. 

As of 7:00 a.m. today, December 15, webcams only captured residual incandescence and no lava movement in the F3 vent. The channels below the vent appear drained of lava and no longer feed the main flow front. 

The inactive main flow front remains stalled about 1.7 mi (2.8 km) from the Daniel K. Inouye Highway (Saddle Road) when last measured on the morning of December 10. The inactive main flow front still glows at a few spots at night and may inch northward very slowly as it continues to settle. 

Sulfur dioxide (SO2) emission rates are at background levels; on December 10, the emission rate was approximately 2,000 tonnes per day (t/d). The Hawaii Interagency Vog Information

Another eruption occurred yesterday. The lava flow has been contained to the crater so far.
