In Kilauea, overflights confirm that the lava flow 61 g is no longer active on the costal plain and the Pali, but it remains on the upper field, near Pu'u O'o.
On March 29, rains on the eruptive zone generated steam over a 61 g lava tube; the outgoing steam formed vortices, one after the other ... great photos captured by Bruce Omori / Extreme exposure / Paradise helicopters
