As Hawaii's Kilauea volcano continues to erupt, threatening residents of the Big Island with ash, toxic gas and even lava bombs, a special kind of volcanic lingo has been spewing forth as well.
Citing figures from the United States Geological Survey, he noted that about 40 square miles of the island were buried in fresh lava between 1983 and 2003 alone. New footage from the Hawaii Army National Guard paints a stark picture of Puna, Hawaii, as the lava flows burn bright red in the darkness of night. Accumulations of cooled, hardened lava created a thick, 30-foot (9.14-meter) high wall of solid volcanic rock channeling fresh lava streams from fissures to the south, away from the PGV plant, USGS scientists said.
The threat of lava from fissures in the East Rift Zone on Hawaii's Big Island near Kilauea have forced almost 2,000 people - including from Leilani Estates - to leave since eruptions began almost three weeks ago.
He said it was only the second time he's ever seen blue flames during an eruption.
Lava edged towards a geothermal power plant on Tuesday after destroying an old warehouse near the facility, County of Hawaii Civil Defense said.
Geological Survey scientist Wendy Stovall says the methane can cause explosions when it's ignited while trapped underground.
Residents down rift of the lava flows should be prepared to voluntarily evacuate at a moment's notice.
Officials said there was no "immediate threat" to the Puna Geothermal Company (PGV) a 38-megawatt plant run by the state of Hawaii. Geologists say the volcano has entered into a more violent phase, in which larger amounts of molten rock are pouring out from fissures and travelling further than before.
A flammable gas called pentane is used as part of the process, though officials earlier this month removed 190,000 litres of the gas from the plant to reduce the chance of explosions.
At least 22 lava fissures have opened in lower Puna, Hawaii, since a May 4 quake near the Kilauea volcano.
While one man almost lost his leg to flying lava splatter, no one has died yet in connection to the volcanic activity.
