Kapoho map after 1960 eruption

Final Kapoho map

Map showing the situation at the end of the eruption. The Coast Guard residence area has been covered, but the lighthouse remains. Kula Pond is gone, and `a`a invaded the north end of Kapoho Beach Lots. Lava completely buried the third Kuki`i-Kapoho barrier and, on February 4, completely surrounded the double cone at Pu`u Kukae-Pu`u Kuki`i.
