Here's a link to a thread from 2 days ago - Shea's response (1st post) provides current info: tripadvisor.ca/ShowTopic-g29217-i268-k748755…

Also, here's a link to info on the overlook at Jaggar Museum, where you can see the glow from lava inside the Halema‘uma‘u Crater after dark. nps.gov/havo/planyourvisit/jaggar_museum.htm

Things have been staying about the same for months now, so that's why there haven't been regular updates, nothing new to say. People on island are watching the flow carefully and wondering if it will get to Pahoa or other inhabited area. Tourism of the lava seems like a minor concern at the moment, when there is a chance the whole artery connecting lower Puna and thousands of people will be cut off.
