BIG ISLAND, Hawaii (FOX NEWS) -- The lava flow on Hawaii's Big Island is showing signs of slowing - or at least pausing.

Aerial photos taken at Fissure Eight show a significant reduction in lava flow. But the U.S. Geological Survey says a new discharge or increased activity could come at any time.

The lava eruption, which started on May 3, destroyed more than 700 homes.

Since that time, at least 24 people were injured by the lava, including 23 passengers on a tour boat that were watching lava flow into the ocean. The flow caused an explosion that sent some of the lava into the boat.
