The volcano lava flow continues to advance slowly on the Big Island of Hawaii. Hawaii County Civil Defense officials say the Puna Lava flow moved approximately 55 yards since 6:30 a.m. Wednesday and is 100 feet from a home, according to http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com. The lava flow is about 225 yards from Pahoa Village Road. A shelter is open for residents, who had to evacuate.
The lava flow is from Kilauea, one of the most active volcanos in the world. Kilauea has been actively erupting since 1983, according to the Associated Press. Since June, this lava flow has crept slowly and is threatening homes, according to WTSP-TV. The lava flow reached the village of Pahoa on the Big Island this week.
