Still no imminent threat from Hawaii lava flow

By Associated Press

HILO, Hawaii (AP) Pahoa community members are being assured that a lava flow still doesn't pose an immediate threat.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory Scientist-in-Charge Jim Kauahikaua told a packed community meeting Thursday the flow appears to be "weeks to months" from reaching Kaohe homesteads or other neighborhoods south of Pahoa.

Scientists continue to monitor what's known as Kilauea volcano's June 27 flow, named for the date is was observed emerging.

Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports that as of Thursday, the easternmost tip was about 1.8 miles from the homesteads. Kauahikaua says the active surface flow was still more than 5 miles away.

He says the part of the flow closest to the homes appears to have stalled.

Civil defense will call for evacuations if lava appears to be within five days of reaching populated areas.
