Lava van Kilauea bedreigt stad op Hawaï

Lava van de Hawaïaanse vulkaan Kilauea, die al sinds 1983 op regelmatige basis uitbarst, bedreigt de nabijgelegen stad Pahoa. Normaal gezien loopt de lava in zee ten zuiden van de vulkaan. Maar sinds 27 juni is er een verse lavastroom, die zich in noordoostelijk richting beweegt. Al dagen kijken de bewoners van Pahoa met lede ogen toe hoe de lava steeds dichter en dichter komt. En nu de lava de stad bereikt heeft, zijn ze genoodzaakt te vluchten.

The lava flow from Mt. Kilauea inches closer to the village of Pahoa, Hawaii October 29, 2014. A slow-moving river of molten lava from an erupting volcano crept over residential and farm property on Hawaii's Big Island on Wednesday after incinerating an outbuilding as it threatened dozens of homes at the edge of a former plantation town. The lava flow from the Kilauea volcano has been slogging toward the village of Pahoa for weeks, moving at speeds of 10 to 15 yards (metres) an hour as it bubbled over a cemetery and reached the community's outskirts.
