Lava erupting from Pu‘u ‘O‘o since mid-March has slowly spread and irregularly across three areas located within about 7 km (4 mi) from the vent on Kilauea Volcano’s East Rift Zone. These active lava flows are not presently posing an immediate threat to any community in the Puna District.
Beginning again today, the Tribune-Herald is publishing each Saturday a photo from the Lyman Museum’s John Howard Pierce Photography Collection. The museum is seeking help identifying the people and places in the pictures, most of which are from the 1950s and ’60s. Those with information about the subjects in the photos can contact the museum by calling 935-5021 or emailing email@example.com. Nothing is known about THIS PHOTO (NO. 02681).
