An observatory has captured a dramatic timelapse video of Hawaii's Kilauea Volcano.

Above, the easternmost lobe of the East Rift Zone flows entered the ocean Tuesday.

Hawaii County officials say lava from active fissures near the Puna plant has destroyed an old warehouse site that was used in early research and development. Some lava, however, menaced a geothermal plant.

Officials said they were taking a zero tolerance to any looting or vandalism in evacuated areas. He said crews will make a "day-to-day decision" about when and whether that work can be completed.

Kilauea rumbled back to life on May 3 as it began extruding lava and sulfur dioxide emissions through a series of fissures, marking the latest phase of an eruption cycle that has continued almost nonstop for 35 years. The actual number of buildings destroyed is believed to be higher, however.

Stovall said lava spatter from one of the vents was forming a wall that was helping protect a nearby geothermal plant.

The eruption from the Kilauea volcano seems to have become a clear and present danger to Puna Geothermal Venture, a power plant owned by an Israeli company on the Big Island of Hawaii.

A volcanic ash cloud hovers in the distance over the small town of Pahala during the eruption of the Kilauea Volcano in Pahala, Hawaii, U.S., May 23, 2018. Burning ejecta from the still-erupting Kilauea volcano had lit the blaze.

This image released by the US Geological Survey shows the Kilauea Volcano summit lava lake which has dropped significantly over the past few days.

When you think of the ways a volcanic eruption can hurt or kill, you probably imagine gooey lava streams, steaming fissures and crumbling ash columns that could turn a whole city into statues.

"I'm good on the lava, yeah", he said. The lava has reached to within about 300 yards of the nearest well, he said. New footage from the Hawaii Army National Guard paints a stark picture of Puna, Hawaii, as the lava flows burn bright red in the darkness of night. The USGS has crews at PGV to monitor the movement of the flow near the 815-acre property. Underground wells bring up steam and hot liquid, and the steam feeds a turbine generator.

A third production well, known as KS14, presented special problems because the advancing magma in the area apparently caused the contents of the well to heat up. He said crews will likely confirm the status of the well by the end of today. "It was the worst thing I've ever seen happen to me in my life", he added. In other words, those wells were not generating upward pressure that could cause gases or fluids to escape. To avoid lava bomb-related injury, take heed of evacuation notices (Clinton admitted his neighborhood was under evacuation, but he felt safe in his home) - and please, no matter where you are, do not attempt to stop the lava.

"We do feel at this point that the facility is stable and the highest risks have been mitigated", Ige told reporters.
