Hawaii: active lava flow prompts evacuation warnings

Text size Aa Aa

Hawaii authorities have warned several dozen residents near an active volcano to prepare for a possible evacuation during the next week as molten rock oozed across a country road and edged closer to homes.

The lava crossed a road on the edge of Pahoa, the largest town in the mostly rural region of Puna on the Big Island of Hawaii, and was about one kilometre from Pahoa Village Road, the town’s main street.
