Pāhoehoe flows are still active on the coastal plain but have advanced little over the past week. On October 30, 2012, the active flow front was about 1.3 km (0.8 miles) from the ocean. In the background, the remains of Royal Gardens subdivision can be seen on the pali, with the fume sources marking the path of the lava tube. This area is very remote and is about 5 miles from the end of Chain of Craters Road
