Lava approaches the Puna Geothermal Venture in the Leilani Estates near Pahoa, Hawaii, U.S., May 28, 2018.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has been erupting for pretty much the entire month of May, slowly oozing molten rock out of several fissures in the ground.

According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency lava from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano has reached a geothermal power plant on Big Island that has wells containing toxic gas.

Firefighters went door to door evacuating residents before the lava arrived. The infrared coloring helps to better distinguish the lava fields and areas that have been burned.

The sole reported serious injury from the eruption so far came when a man was hit by flying lava.

"It's this tide of lava that rises up and overflows itself on the edges and keeps rising and progressing forward", U.S. Geological Survey geologist Wendy Stovall told journalists on a conference call.

"At this time, the lava is, at various points, 200 yards from active wells", Mace said.

Magma has drained from Kilauea's summit lava lake and flowed 40km east underground, bursting out of about two dozen giant cracks or fissures near the plant.
