Something You Don’t Hear Everyday: ‘Lava Evacuation’!
Hawaii residents told to prepare for possible lava evacuation.
Officials say molten lava from the Kilauea volcano has been flowing steadily in an area where residents have been warned they might have to evacuate their homes.
Authorities on Sunday said lava flow on the Big Island of Hawaii had advanced hundreds of yards since Saturday morning. The lava moving at the rate of about 10 to 15 yards an hour, slow enough to outrun...unless you're a house.
Kilauea volcano has been erupting continuously since 1983, but most lava from this eruption has flowed south; this lava has flowed to the northeast over the past two years.
