HONOLULU (AP) - Hawaii County says the active lava flow from Kilauea volcano has advanced about 300 yards since Saturday.

But the county civil defense department, on its website Sunday morning, said the activity does not pose an immediate threat to local communities.

The department said the lava front was about 1.4 miles upslope of the Highway 130 and Pahoa Village Road intersection.

Conditions continue to be monitored by the county civil defense and Hawaiian Volcano Observatory.
