New lava flow on the Big Island

I know this is the wrong forum, but I thought some Kauai visitors would want to know of this event:

This was a VERY shortlived event. I was just down there about 45 minutes ago, and this "renegade" flow is already dead. The lava is still flowing into the ocean the way it's been for the last couple of years but the entry point into the ocean is about 3/4 of a mile from the viewing area.

Wow, this is so bizare. I was just on the B.I. in Sept.2009 and I was right there walking on those Lava Fields! I could feel the presence of Madame Pele all around. I'm heading back to Kauai next but I did enjoy exploring the Big Island. it was beautiful!

Thanks for the update!
