Kilauea volcanic lava may cross geothermal property

Hawaii officials order some residents to flee from fast lava

Lava approaches the Puna Geothermal Venture in the Leilani Estates near Pahoa, Hawaii, U.S., May 28, 2018. The well was successfully plugged in anticipation of the lava flow, and a second well 100 feet away has also been secured, according to the report. "Also due to preventative measures, neither well is expected to release any hydrogen sulfide", it said.

The Kilauea volcano on Big Island of Hawaii has been in the news for a couple of months. The volcano began erupting on May 3, and since then at least 20 lava fissures have opened up.

Lava from Hawaii's erupting Kilauea volcano threatened to cover more wells at a geothermal power station on Monday as a fresh blast from the crater sent an ash plume nearly 15,000 feet (4,600 m) into the sky, officials said.

More residents in some sections of the Leilani Estates neighbourhood were ordered to immediately evacuate shortly before 8 p.m.

U.S. Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall said Friday that the summit is shooting out a plume of water vapor and ash. About 2,200 acres have been covered in lava since the volcano started erupting.

While eruptions continue at the main crater, Kilauea's lava flows have also proven extremely risky for bystanders and residents who refused to evacuate.

Taiwan loses second ally in a month as Burkina Faso cuts ties
Independence-leaning President Tsai Ing-wen told reporters that Taiwan would only work harder at cooperating with other countries. Tsai has lashed out at China's "crude behaviours" since Burkina Faso broke ties.

"What has been coming out is just a small fraction of what was in the volcano", he said.

In addition to vigorous eruptions, authorities are concerned about worsening ground cracking, air quality issues, ashfall in communities downwind of Kilauea's summit, and lava threatening key thoroughfares, something that could spur additional evacuations. About 2,000 people have fled their homes.

Further, the molten lava and heat could rupture the wells at the plant.

Ireland overwhelmingly votes to repeal abortion ban, exit polls project
Irish Prime Minister Leo Varadkar , who backs the reform, said he was taking nothing for granted as he voted in the capital. That said, with a result of that magnitude, clearly there was very little to be done.

Geologists say there's no telling when the volcanic activity might end. "We monitor for hydrogen sulfide and sulfur dioxide on a continuous basis", Kaleikini said.
