The lava is flowing into the ocean and causing sea levels to raise. LOL!   :lol:

    blue flames trigger fears of explosions

    Blue flames burning in the lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano are raising new fears of explosions. Emergency officials say if fissures open west of Pahoa, lava could block the one remaining open highway. If that happens, about 1,000 people would have to be helicoptered to safety, reports CBS News' Mark Strassmann.

    Residents are also eyeing another disturbing development. After three weeks of gawking at images of bright red lava bursting skyward, the Big Island's focus has shifted to something blue and worrisome: blue flames that indicate the presence of methane gas. Methane gas is a result of the lava burning plants and trees. Scientists say it can trigger explosions if ignited while trapped underground.

    "It's the first time, maybe the second time I've seen the blue flames thing. It's very dramatic, very eerie," geophysicist Jim Kauahikaua said.

    Lava wall protecting geothermal plant

    Officials say lava spatter from Hawaii’s erupting volcano is creating a wall that’s helping protect a nearby geothermal plant.

    U.S. Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall said Wednesday that lava erupting from a vent closest to Puna Geothermal Venture is shooting higher than lava coming out of other vents.

    She says it’s also producing the highest lava wall, which is blocking molten rock from flowing north toward the plant.

    Residents have been concerned about hazards if lava flowed over the plant’s facilities or if the molten rock heated chemicals at the plant.

    Lava from the eruption on the Big Island is primarily flowing south toward the ocean.

    Officials shut down Puna Geothermal shortly after Kilauea began erupting on May 3.

    On Tuesday, officials finished plugging wells that bring up hot liquid and steam that feed a turbine generator.

    Lava flow in Hawaii reaches nearly 4 square miles

    The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports the lava flow we've all been watching for a few weeks now in Leilani Estates is now covering more than 2,300 acres, or 3.7 square miles.

    Halemaumau Crater is producing small bursts of volcanic ash.

    The ash is slowly being pushed downwind.

    Additionally, volcanic gases, vog, and ash emissions may increase in areas downwind of the vents.

    Lava flow stalls, sparing Hawaii geothermal plant from more damage

    A lava flow from Hawaii’s erupting Kilauea volcano that damaged a geothermal power station has stalled, as have lava fountains gushing 100 feet (30 meters) into the air, offering momentary relief to an area under siege for 25 days, officials said on Monday.

    Lava engulfed the heads of two wells that tap into steam and gas deep in the Earth’s core at the 38-megawatt Puna Geothermal Venture on Saturday. Its operator, Israeli-controlled Ormat Technologies Inc, said it had not been able to assess the damage.

    Residents fear the wells may be explosive. Officials have said the power plant is safe but lava has never engulfed a geothermal plant anywhere in the world, leaving a measure of uncertainty.

    Reed,

    I did read that the USGS Hawaiian Volcano Observatory had just moved its operations center to the UH-Hilo. Things were getting too close/hot for comfort near the crater rim?

    Heed evacuation orders, or you're on your own, mayor says

    So much for the slow-moving lava. Magma from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano traveled down Highway 132 overnight in Pahoa, forcing evacuations as emergency responders worry residents could be painted into a corner on the east side of the Big Island.

    Residents in Kapoho -- including Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland -- have been advised to evacuate, according to a Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency message.

    It warned that Beach Road, east of Highway 137, was at risk of "possible lava inundation," which could trap residents in the area. Just after 8 a.m., the agency warned "flows are advancing on Highway 137."

    Lava flows cut off access to more Hawaii neighborhoods

    A lava flow from the erupting Kilauea volcano has cut off access to Kapoho and Vacationland on Hawaii's Big Island, officials said Saturday.

    The Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency also said vigorous lava eruptions are continuing in Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens.

    El Fuego just popped in Guatemala, killing 25 at last count. This may be related to Kilauea activity. Lots of volcanoes in the Pacific Rim including the U.S. West Coast and hopefully more don't become active.
