Creeping Lava Now Threatens Major Hawaiian Power Plant

Ige said transportation officials are "also looking at other alternative routes and trying to decide what would make the most sense in terms of providing safe passage. The closest residence from the edge of the lava was within 75 feet of the edge of the lava". Also, land south of the eruption has started to drop due to widening in the rift zone, causing the primary lava to move south, away from the plant, which is located north of the line of fissures, Stovall said. The fissures were producing huge ponds of lava and feeding flows that were covering roads in the Puna subdivision.

Low lava fountains were erupting from a almost continuous two-mile (3.22km) portion of the series of fissures that have opened up in the ground, scientists said.

"Every day we have to wash our cars and wash down the patio because the ash just covers everything", she said over the crowing of four roosters tethered to a chicken coop in the yard. It was the projectiles from the lava fountains they had to watch for, and they had learned to judge their arc as they sailed through the air, pushed by the wind.

He said another flow was expected to enter the ocean that afternoon.

"It's nearly like catching a football", Clinton told CNN, who interviewed him on Friday, before he was hit by a lava bomb.

Kilauea sparked new safety warnings on Monday about toxic gas on the Big Island's southern coastline after lava flowing into the ocean set off a chemical reaction. "It was all happening at one time".

The race at the site marked the latest challenge facing authorities during what geologists call an unprecedented, simultaneous eruption at Kilauea's summit and from giant fissures 25 miles (40 km) down its eastern side.

Leilani Estates, a neighborhood on the Big Island, is overwhelmed by a river of molten misery.

The U.S. Geological Survey said sulfur dioxide emissions from the volcano have more than doubled since the current eruption began.

"What we try to focus on with all our messaging is that people recognize the possibility of isolation, that they need to be prepared", Talmadge Magno, Hawaii County Civil Defense administrator, told reporters Wednesday.
