Creeping Lava: Erupting Kilauea volcano triggers evacuation fears in Hawaii

RT | Oct 26, 2014

Hawaii authorities on Saturday told several dozen residents near an active lava flow to prepare for a possible evacuation in the next three to five days as molten rock oozed across a country road and edged closer to homes. The flow is currently about 160 to 230 feet (50 to 70 metres) wide and moving northeast at about nine metres per hour. Kilauea volcano on the Big Island has been erupting continuously since 1983.
