Lava closer to Big Island subdivision

By 67AM KPUA News

HILO, Hawaii (AP) The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory says a lava flow could be a week away from a rural subdivision. Observatory Scientist-in-Charge Jim Kauahikaua says officials are expected to raise the lava threat from a watch to a warning. That's expected to happen as early as today.

Once that change is made, Hawaii County Civil Defense will restrict the Kaohe Homesteads to residents and property owners only. Civil Defense Administrator Darryl Oliveira says officials would create alternate routes for lower Puna residents.The homesteads are about a mile from the Kilauea Volcano lava flow. Evacuation notices will be issued when the flow is at least five days from reaching the community.

Another community meeting to update residents on the status of the flow will be held tonight at 6:30 p.m. at the Pahoa High School Cafeteria.
