May 14, 2018 Pele Heads for the Ocean

Pu'u 'O'o's lava has reached the flow field... her lava is hotter and more fluid, creating more fountaining and a one mile long a'a flow overnight. Pele is heading to the Pacific Ocean... only about a mile and a half away. And a new fissure has apparently broken out in Lani Puna Gardens... just southeast of the PGV Geothermal plant. The enormous amount of lava erupted is only a couple hundred yards from Highway 132, which would effectively cut off many residents on the red road, making ingress and egress much more difficult.
