Lava threats surge as residents told to get out

Adjust Comment Print

Hawaii authorities have a message for residents in some areas affected by the Kilauea volcano: evacuate or get arrested.

The total number of evacuees was estimated to have risen to about 2,500 after residents from the nearby Kapoho area were evacuated as a precaution on Wednesday.

The Hawaii Civil Defense Agency said the wells "are stable and secure", and Hawaii Governor David Ige said that the plant was "sufficiently safe" from the lava that has ploughed through backyards and streets and burned dozens of homes.

Lava from one fissure created fountains Tuesday night and into Wednesday morning that reached over 200 feet (61 meters).

Hawaii's Volcanoes National Park has been closed for 19 days and has no water due to damaged utility lines, said Jessica Ferracane, a spokeswoman for the National Park Service.

In Hawaii's East Rift Zone, where Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens are located, "additional ground cracking and outbreaks of lava in the area of the active fissures are possible", the USGS said.

On top of all that, the USGS said ash was still erupting intermittently from Kilauea's summit.

This thermal map shows the fissure system and lava flows as of 12:15 pm on Wednesday, May 30, 2018. Any residents remaining should evacuate now.

He told Hawaii News Now: "If we can get a project like that going over here, I'm confident that you ring that bell people are going to come, people are going to support it". Those who choose to ignore the orders will have to fend for themselves, Kim said.

John Goodman Breaks His Silence on Roseanne Cancellation
US President Donald Trump on Wednesday broke his silence on Barr, who has been one of his most outspoken supporters. Six of Goodman's 11 Emmy nominations between 1988 and 2010 came from his role on Roseanne , so he may have a point.

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.

Nevertheless, some ash and fumes have been spouted high enough into the atmosphere to be carried far over the Pacific Ocean, with observers in the Marshall Islands, Micronesia and Guam detecting traces of vog - a hazy mix of sulphur dioxide, aerosols, moisture and fine particles, Birchard said.

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.

Civil defense officials have previously said about 2,000 residents in and around Leilani Estates were displaced at the outset of the current eruption, which began on 3 May. The ocean entries that were previously created by lava flows from fissure 22 are now inactive, but a new flow fed from the central part of the fissure system is slowly making its way just west of the previous flow channels and might reach the ocean near Mackenzie State park.
