Quoted from the video “FOBOS Planet (June 17, 2018): New great lava flow in Hawaii 2018. Stunning video of a giant lava river, powered by the Fissure #8, a fast flow of Lava drains in direction of Kapoho Bay, Hawaii. The fountain at fissure 8 has been reaching heights of 175-200 feet, and the cone surrounding the fissure is now 170 feet high! Fissures 16, 18, and now 15, which is by Pohoiki road have all seem some oozing and minor lava spattering.

 

Video:

 

Isn’t this river of lava flowing unbelievable!  I wish I could hop on a plane to Kona to take in this incredible fate of Mother Nature. It’s been @ 10 years since I stayed on the Kona side of the Big Island and visited the Kilauea volcano park. We were able to walk as close as allowed to see the hot flow of lava, a mind boggling view! Has anyone else seen the volcano? Are you taking a trip soon to see it active?

Even if I had the funds to go there, I wouldn't. Lovely to look at from a distance perhaps, but it's deadly.

OB...great article! :) The trauma and terror is insurmountable and as you say, deadly.  :( ( My wish is more metaphorical than any possibility of me ever placing myself in danger, my son needs me.) Along with your article I sure hope that all residents and visitors take heed to the directives of all of the agencies.

Were I able to, viewing the volcano and lava would be phenomenal. All we have nearby are rinky-dink Saltan Sea mud eruptions :) -

softeyes, unfortunately no, it's the San Andreas fault at fault. :)

Was just reading about those a little while ago.  I didn't get to the article I was reading earlier, but here is another one:

Wow..this information is fascinating! Just when I think I have covered a lot of territory close to me, there's always something new to discover, thanks guys. r.a.d. do you see them outside of your area? Laugh with me, for years I have "wished" I could afford a retreat at the Golden Door (https://goldendoor.com/your-stay/spa/) never did I connect the dots that the desert mud they use might be from the Salton Sea! I'll probably never get to enjoy the pleasure at their prices for a mud (clay) treatment  :oneeye:

OB...I appreciate your warnings about the dangers of volcano lava, check out this story about the dangers of mud volcanoes::

softeyes, a quick clarification: the Andreas fault isn't directly responsible (or golfers) for that mud, geothermal heat is, but some new mud pots discovered some time back indicated further fault structures beneath the ground. 

That spa you posted sounds like something my wife would certainly enjoy, mud baths and all if we had the money, but... ain't really a guy thing. :)

Our hearts are out for those affected by the Kilauea volcano and wish the best for them.

BTW, the Salton Sea used to be a desert paradise:

Edit/add: Orange Blossom, the MNN article & photos we're incredible! I'd meant to mention that earlier.
