Mesmerizing ‘Lavafall’ Consumes Hawaii Hill

The fiery falls, as seen in the video above, are from a lava flow that began erupting from Kilauea Volcano on June 27. The flow has traveled more than 13 miles since then and is currently crawling through the rural town of Pahoa, destroying cemeteries and homes in its path.

On Tuesday, as the flow neared the Pahoa Transfer Station, a county-owned public facility building, it burned through a wire fence and formed lava cascades down a small hill.

If this lava breakout remains active, the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory estimates that the road will be consumed in a matter of days.
