Fast lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano closes highway

Lava reaches area of geothermal power station in Hawaii

The Kilauea volcano has been unleashing danger on the remote, rural southeastern side of the island for almost a month, displacing thousands of residents, destroying 37 houses and forcing businesses to shut down.

At that rate, the lava, which forced the evacuations of residents along roads north of Highway 132, covered nearly a half-mile in 80 minutes, the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency said.

The Hawai'i County Civil Defense ordered fresh evacuations in the Leilani Estates after a fast-moving lava flow began moving through the area.

While eruptions continue at the main crater, Kilauea's lava flows have also proven extremely unsafe for bystanders and residents who refused to evacuate.

One active fissure is shooting molten rock hundreds of feet into the air, CBS News reported.

"Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that lava from several fissures continues to advance toward the Kapoho area", a Civil Defense message said, referencing an area that was devastated during a 1960 eruption.

With its red-hot rivers of lava have destroyed dozens of homes on Hawaii's Big Island, with 2,000 people being told to leave their properties.

She doesn't expect to see a change in the same environmental regulations that she says has failed to protect her property. A lack of capacity in pipelines or in rail cars to ship oil produced in Alberta is also hurting Canada's energy sector.

The agency has been updating the public, disseminating vital safety information and responding to questions over Twitter since early May but on Tuesday, officials took some time to respond to an odd query: Jay Furr wanted to know, "Is it safe to roast marshmallows over volcanic vents? And if you add sulfuric acid (in vog (volcanic smog), for example) to sugar, you get a pretty spectacular reaction.(sic)".

Hawaii County Mayor Harry Kim on Wednesday renewed an emergency proclamation for 60 more days, allowing construction of temporary shelters and other relief projects to proceed on an expedited basis, without reviews and permits normally required. The biggest impacts might be vog, but that has been a persistent issue on the island for decades.

Explosions at the summit were sending small bursts of volcanic ash as high as 15,000 feet (4,570 meters).

'Even the wispy edges of it can cause skin and eye irritation and breathing difficulties, ' USGS warned.

Leilani Estates resident Steve Gebbie told CNN he lost his home to lava Sunday night.

USGS: The eruption at Kilauea right now is impacting a small portion of the Big Island. Randy's house is gone.

Puna Geothermal Venture has completed work to prepare the rest of its power plant near Pahoa to be overrun by lava, Hawaii County officials announced this morning.
