US: Lava flows continue to consume Hawaiian roads

(News Desk) – Slow-moving lava has crept into residential areas near Pahoa, on the eastern edge of Hawaii’s Big Island, on Monday, blocking off roads and threatening to engulf several buildings.

With no sign of the lava flows stopping, hundreds of local residents have been forcibly evacuated from Leilani Estates and Lanipuna Gardens, two of the worst-affected residential areas.

The lava flows consume anything in their path, with telegraph poles and even tarmac bursting into flames.

The appearance of lava follows hundreds of earthquakes recorded over the past few days at a magnitude of between 2 and 5 on the Richter scale.
