Well get a load of this video of a lobe approaching that geothermal plant.

Mileka Lincoln is at Puna Geothermal Venture.

PUNA GEOTHERMAL VENTURE UPDATE (May 21 at 5:15 PM):
New video from on the ground shows the lobe that broke off of fissure 22 and is heading toward the Puna Geothermal Venture plant site. Officials with the Hawaiʻi Emergency Management Agency say if lava interacts with PGV’s wells, it could trigger the deadly release of hydrogen sulfide. After contradictory statements earlier today, Puna Geothermal Venture officials are now confirming that there is a lava flow on PGV property — however, they clarify that it is not on their plant site. According to PGV spokesperson Mike Kaleikini, PGV leases 815 acres of land in Puna and uses 40 acres of it for the geothermal plant. Kaleikini says there is lava on the 815 acres of property the company is leasing — but NOT within the perimeter or boundary of the 40 acres they use to operate their plant. Kaleikini says the flow front from a lobe that has broken off of fissure is now 100 meters away from the plant site, but has stalled. Officials say a berm is currently preventing it from flowing into or over any equipment. According to Mike Kaleikini, plant personnel have been working around the clock to finish “quenching” the six wells on site. Officials describe quenching as the procedure they follow to “kill” the wells by pumping cold water into the wells prior to plugging them. Kaleikini says the quenching process is not complete, but in various stages and at least one well has proven to be problematic. According to PGV officials, KS14 resisted both fresh and salt water being injected into the well in an effort to kill the heat and pressure — reportedly because it had access to a great deal more heat than it had prior. Officials say worst-case scenario would be a blow-out of a well, if the well head was sheared off — but they say they believe the lava itself would probably prevent a violent blow out of the pressure. Stay tuned to Hawaii News Now for the very latest developments #HInews #HawaiiNews #HNN #HawaiiNewsNow #WeAreYourSource



I mean I get it that there is a berm right now, but that lava ate up 300 meters in an hour the other day so whats 300 feet.

HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY DAILY UPDATE
U.S. Geological Survey
Monday, May 21, 2018, 4:11 PM HST (Tuesday, May 22, 2018, 02:11 UTC)

Please see this new section of the HVO web site for information on the ongoing activity at Kilauea Volcano: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/observatorie ... _2018.html

LOWER EAST RIFT ZONE

Moderate-level eruption of lava continues from multiple points along the northeast end of the active fissure system. Residents in lower Puna should remain informed and heed Hawaii County Civil Defense closures, warnings, and messages (http://www.hawaiicounty.gov/active-alerts)

Fissure 22 is erupting a short line of low lava fountains that feed a channelized flow that reaches the coast just north of MacKenzie State Park. Spattering continues from a reactivated Fissures 6 that intermittently feeds a short lava flow. Fissures 17 and 19 continue weak spattering.

HVO field crews are on site tracking the lava flows and spattering from multiple fissures as conditions allow and reporting information to Hawaii County Civil Defense.

For the most recent map showing the locations of activity, please see https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/ki ... _maps.html These maps are updated as often as possible but may not reflect the most recent changes.

Volcanic gas emissions have tripled as a result of the voluminous eruptions from Fissure 20 so SO2 concentrations are likely elevated to higher levels throughout the area downwind of the vents. Moderate trade winds today means that areas downwind of Kilauea gas emission sources may experience varying levels of vog.

This eruption is still evolving and additional outbreaks of lava are possible. Ground deformation has slowed and seismicity levels have decrease in the area.

Future outbreaks could occur both uprift (southwest) and downrift (northeast) of the existing fissures, or, existing fissures can be reactivated. Communities downslope of these fissures could be at risk from lava inundation. Activity can change rapidly.


Image

KILAUEA SUMMIT

One explosive eruption of ash occurred at about 1 am this morning. Several smaller ash emissions have also taken place and produced abundant ash. Additional explosions possible at any time.

Seismic levels, which abruptly decreased after the recent explosive eruptions, are again slowly increasing.

At this time, based on HVO web cameras, a robust plume of gas and steam is billowing out of the Overlook vent and drifting generally southwest.

At any time, activity may again become more explosive, increasing the intensity of ash production and producing ballistic projectiles very near the vent. Communities downwind should be prepared for ashfall as long as this activity continues.

Seismicity and deformation continue at the Kilauea summit. Deflation is ongoing. Additional earthquakes in the Kilauea summit area are expected as long as the summit continues to deflate.

Current webcam views are here: https://volcanoes.usgs.gov/volcanoes/ki ... bcams.html

I've noticed every time there's a larger ash eruption, that tilt thingy does a big jump.

I knew intellectually that pahoehoe was a lot more fluid, but this stuff is almost like thick water.
That pilot has more shots.

Can you imagine being the homeowners within the lava rivers? Hopefully they got out.

I dont know if something is going on at the geothermal plant with the lava approaching, but the East Rift Zone is lit up tonight.

East Rift Zone Eruption - Update 4, 5/21/18 6PM
This is a Civil Defense Message for Monday, May 21 at 6:00 in the evening.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that an explosive eruption at Kilauea summit has occurred at 5:51 PM. The resulting ash plume may affect surrounding areas.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that eruptive lava activity at multiple fissures continues with one flow entering the ocean. Fissure 22 continues to produce most of the lava feeding the flows.

Lava from Fissure 22 has crossed onto the Puna Geothermal Venture property. County, state, and federal partners have been collaborating closely to monitor the situation and work with PGV to ensure the safety of the surrounding communities. Ten of the eleven wells have been quenched. Efforts are ongoing to make sure the site is secure and the community is kept safe.

Due to current volcanic activity, the following information is provided for your awareness:

Residents in the affected area should be prepared to leave the area with little notice due to gas or lava inundation. Take action necessary to prepare ahead of time.
Gas levels remain high. Limit further exposure by sheltering in place or leaving the area.

Its from the same porch that Honolulu Civil Beats is streaming from. In fact the media has discovered the 2 houses with the view. I noticed CBS was over where Hawaii News Now is and you can sometimes hear the reporters from CNN and NBC doing their routine on Civil Beats livestream in the background. I think PBS Newshour even got broadcast rights yesterday.

This is the segment I heard the guy doing offscreen the other day on the porch. I remembered him using meters, and its because thats a Canadian network.
https://youtube.com/watch?v=GwpdF-zXVDI

The BBC did a piece on one of the Homeowners.
http://www.bbc.com/news/av/world-us-can ... -lava-flow

Yesterday USGS could be seen on the lawns of the properties. I think both houses are doing a useful purpose essentially monitoring the fissures for everybody.

The live feeds have been amazing. The shot I saw yesterday had the reporter on the homeowner's back deck and he was able to show the lava stream and pan around and show the fissure that was giving off the loud booms that sounded like thunder. You could also hear barking dogs and crowing roosters - surreal! I estimated the lava fountain to be about 65'-70' high (count the seconds the lava takes to fall from the top of the fountain to the ground, then use basic high school physics to determine 'Y'). Add to that it wasn't a single stream but more like the biggest water main break you've ever seen - that's a LOT of lava!

FWIW - I refuse to call this a tragedy - it's not. This is mother nature at her best.

You were only off by 90 ft. USGS said it was fountaining at 163 ft. or so yesterday. I think it looks deceptively lower because the hardened lava walls are hiding its base on the camera side. Here's the aerial:

Rusty the Rooster now has his own Facebook page and the lava chasers are dubbing themselves LavaRoosters.

Yeah you picked the wrong fountain and time to calculate. lol

Its fascinating alright. Cycles w/in cycles of pressure and collapse. Im waiting though for the inevitable link to AGW.
Climate change-higher sealevel-higher water table-AGV or something.

East Rift Zone Eruption, Tues. 5/22/18, 6AM - Update 2
This is a Civil Defense Message for Tuesday, May 22 at 6:00 in the morning.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory continues to monitor active flows. Fissure 6 reactivated last night and has been erupting since around midnight. The flows from Fissure 6 are slowly flowing closer to PGV property.

RUN AWAY!

They'll blame the PGV plant for it.

I saw a reporter ask, "Why is the fissure so close to the plant?" and I think the geologist replied, "well it is a geothermal plant and that spot was probably a point where the magma was heating the water near the surface".

Doh

The latest on the lava approaching the PGV wells.
https://www.facebook.com/milekalincoln. ... =3&theater

Civil Defense says fissure 6 reactivated around midnight and appears to be moving toward PGV. Janet Snyder in the Emergency Operation Center just told #HNN that they have no word on how fast fissure 6 is moving — but she says she watched aerial footage taken by Hawaiʻi County Fire and lava from fissure 6 appears to moving downslope away from PGV. Meanwhile, the lava lobe that broke off of fissure 22 Sunday night and has been heading toward PGV reportedly stalled where it was last night within 300 feet and hasn’t advanced. PGV spokesperson Mike Kaleikini confirms this morning that while lava is on the 815 acres Puna Geothermal Venture leases — it has not made its way onto the 40 acres where they operate the plant site. He couldn’t say how close either flow was to the wells.

They do have a bit of excess geothermal going on.
