See topic. Is this even possible or is everything blocked off?
You will get arrested if you are trespassing and that will be a bummer for your holiday.
The best way to see it is from a helicopter.
Also, this is a disaster zone. So many people in dire need that have lost their homes. Heartbreaking!
It is not an area for tourists at the moment.
Do a helicopter tour.
Here's a great helicopter video from June 9. This is taken by officials monitoring the flow and not what you would be seeing on a public helicopter tour which would be flying over the ocean.
Their videos are some of the best we are seeing on our nightly news. Andy, a couple of years ago you could walk/bicycle about 7 miles round trip to see the lava flow. This time, is so much more different.
The 4 PM update says that gas emissions have nearly doubled at fissure 8 since yesterday--not a good sign. There are also 3 very active fountains.............and the summit continues to shake and shimmy. Could be a larger breakout ahead soon.
