A breakout of episode 61g continues to move gently towards the east and has traveled 1,300 meters, partially surrounding the cone of tephra Pu'u Halulu formed in 1983 at the start of the eruption of Pu'u O'o.
The lava continues to traverse the main / original branch 61g in the direction of the ocean to enter at Kamokuna, where activity is concentrated on the east side of the lava delta.
The instability of the delta is marked by large cracks parallel to the coastline.

Two small breakouts were observed on 29 November, one at the base of Pali Pulama, the other on the costal plain 600 meters inland.
Following the activity of the summit lava lake, large lava fragments (spatters), the size of a plate, spashed on the way between the car park of the Halema'uma'u and the Overlook. Their spreading by impacting the ground left several fragments interconnected by amount of Pele's hair.
