Lava threatens more wells at Hawaii geothermal plant

Lava threatens more wells at Hawaii geothermal plant

A fast-moving lava flow from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano forced more residents out of their homes and in search of shelter from other threatening forms of volcanic activity.

Civil defense reminds affected residents that the Pahoa Community Center, Keaau Community Center, and Sure Foundation Church are open for those in need of shelter.

If a simple majority votes in favour, the constitutional court would then be called to decide whether to impeach or not. Instead, he said, the powers-that-be didn't like his choice for economics minister so they pulled the plug.

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. New aerial video shot Monday morning also showed lava setting fire to or covering several homes.

"The flow from fissures 21 and seven was widening and advancing", said Janet Snyder, a spokeswoman for the County of Hawaii.

"It's this tide of lava that rises up and overflows itself on the edges and keeps rising and progressing forward", U.S. Geological Survey geologist Wendy Stovall told journalists on a conference call. 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.

But for some companies, the expense of making sure they comply with the new rules was simply too much. Regulators in the USA tried to introduce similar privacy safeguards but were stopped by lawmakers.

"Additional ground cracking and outbreaks of lava in the area of the active fissures are possible".

The Kilauea volcano has been erupting for three weeks, spewing lava from cracks that emerged in neighborhoods and sending ash sky-high from its summit.

Volcanic gases, pollution and ash may increase along with sulfur dioxide levels downwind of lava fissures.

With his wife and father looking on, he paid tribute to the "amazing work" of the emergency services and those who responded on the night.

At least 82 homes have been completely destroyed since the first eruption over a month ago, forcing more than 2000 people to flee the area. He said there was no indication of the release of the poisonous gas hydrogen sulfide, the greatest fear should lava hit the wells.
