Lava flow stops after covering 2 wells at geothermal plant

Lava tide EpaLava has never engulfed a geothermal plant anywhere in the world before

These winds will support volcanic emissions and ashfall potentially impacting other locations on the Big Island, such as the Hilo and Kona Districts.

Kilauea rumbled back to life on May 3 as it began extruding lava and toxic gases through a series of cracks in the ground on its eastern flank, marking the latest phase of an eruption cycle that has continued almost nonstop for 35 years.

"I've seen some article that have talked about this becoming a Mount St. Helens and that will never happen".

Fast-moving lava is flowing to another part of a rural Big Island district where Hawaii's Kilauea volcano is erupting, officials said Wednesday in advising those residents to evacuate.

The Hawaii Tourism Authority has chose to focus on two target contributors to the Hawaii market, the United States and Japan.

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


In a statement from Mufi Hannemann of the Hawaii Lodging and Tourism Association, he says, "Given how the Big Island is being portrayed through the media globally, it is no surprise that we are seeing a decrease in travel and hotel reservations".

Those in Kapoho - including Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland - also were ordered out due to the risk of getting trapped by the lava.

"Persons in violation of this order are subject to arrest and will be liable for any costs associated with rescue operations in the mandatory evacuation area", the county said on its website. Fissure 8 was the most active overnight, according to an update from the US Geological Survey, sending lava fountains as high as 250 feet into the air.

The unsafe fibers - named after Hawaiian fire and volcano goddess Pele - are produced when lava splatter droplets cools rapidly in the air and can cause skin and eye irritation similar to volcanic ash. They estimated violent eruptions of molten rock spewing out of a nearby fissure - Fissure 8 - were burning through anything in its path at a rate of 600 yards per hour. The Civil Defense Agency warned it could cause injury if it got in residents' eyes or was breathed in.

The Kilauea volcano has been erupting for four weeks. Vog is a haze created when sulfur dioxide gas and other volcanic pollutants mix with moisture and dust.

The well was successfully plugged in anticipation of the lava flow, and a second well 100 feet (30.5 meters) away has also been secured, according to the report. Since Kilauea's massive eruption May 3, more than 2,000 earthquakes have struck in and around Big Island. The bulk of evacuees were forced from their homes at the outset, in and around the Leilani Estates community farther west, where concentrations of noxious volcanic gases remain high.
