Hawaii Kilauea volcano: Renewed threat to the big island and drone reveals big cracks



The latest from the Hawaii volcano scene according to REUTERS:

 A stream of lava as wide as three football fields flowed over a highway near a junction at Kapoho, a seaside community of rebuilt after a destructive eruption of Kilauea in 1960.

 The lava flow left Kapoho and the adjacent development of Vacationland cut off from the rest of the island by road, according to the Hawaii County Civil Defense agency.

Also, lava destroyed a freshwater lake, boiling away all of the water in it, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reported late Saturday, local time.

Toxic sulfur dioxide gas emissions have created an additional hazard. So too have airborne volcanic glass fibers, called "Pele's hair," wispy strands produced by lava fountains and carried aloft by the wind.

There is more information of strikingly nature coming from the state: A drone footage captured the volcano from the sky -- but also revealed some very strange cracks as the vent is expecting with the crater floor collapse.. The area of the collapse is now more than half the original area of the original crater......
