The latest report from Hawaiian Volcano Observatory scientists and Hawai'i County Civil Defense says after a week of little to no movement of the front of the lava flow near Pahoa Village, it advanced yesterday about 25 yards.  There are also some lava fingers breaking out higher up the volcano.  HPR's Sherry Bracken talked to Mayor Billy Kenoi to get an update on how Hawaii County is preparing.
