Officials have said the power plant is safe but lava has never engulfed a geothermal plant anywhere in the world, creating a measure of uncertainty.

Since the first eruption occurred in the Leilani Estates subdivision on the evening of Thursday, May 3, emergency officials believe almost 2,500 residents have been forced to evacuate as lava, flowing from numerous volcanic fissures, consumes everything in its path.

They're hearing visitors are being scared off, afraid of getting hurt by the eruption.

He told Hawaii News Now: "If we can get a project like that going over here, I'm confident that you ring that bell people are going to come, people are going to support it".

Hawaii County said lava destroyed the local electric utility's equipment on the highway, which knocked out power to Vacationland and Kapoho Beach Lots neighborhoods toward the coast.

"You are at risk of being isolated due to possible lava inundation", the Hawaii County Civil Defense Agency warned. The Kilauea volcano has been unleashing danger on the remote, rural southeastern side of the island for almost a month, displacing thousands of residents, destroying 37 houses and forcing businesses to shut down.

"The lava continues to flow and may reach other wells and areas of the Puna facility", Ormat said in a statement on Monday.

Fissure 8 is now "very active", with two fountains of lava reaching more than 200 feet at times, the US Geological Survey said.

After weeks of scientific updates on the volcano, the U.S. Geological Survey took a lighter tone as it responded to a question on Twitter about whether it would be safe to roast marshmallows over volcanic vents. "Lava can't get hotter than where we are". Lava lobes from Fissure 8 were advancing 100 yards an hour, the USGS said.

Here's a good reason for you to sleep in this weekend
Curiously, after the age of 65, there is no relationship between sleep duration and mortality. Differences between weekend and weekday sleep were most pronounced at a young age.

The unsafe fibers - named after Hawaiian fire and volcano goddess Pele - are produced when lava splatter droplets cools rapidly in the air and can cause skin and eye irritation similar to volcanic ash. Firefighters also had to lead a man from his home near Kilauea late on Sunday after he was trapped by fast-moving lava, Hawaii News Now reported.

Wind was carrying volcanic glass, gases, pollution and ash particles to other parts of the island. The facility produces roughly one-quarter of the Big Island's daily energy supply.

The month-old eruption of Kilauea, one of the world's most active volcanoes, followed an eruption cycle that had continued nearly nonstop for 35 years.

Authorities have now ordered the mandatory evacuation of a 17-block swath of the Leilani Estates subdivision.
