Hawaiians Panic As Lava Reaches Offline Power Plant, More Lava Pours Into Ocean

The Puna Geothermal Venture in Hawaii is secure, and if lava did encroach on it, the danger of a toxic gas release is “very low,” authorities said. Not only that, but the power plant was taken offline when the Kilaeau volcano began erupting earlier this month, so blackouts are not expected.

Nonetheless, the lava is threatening to destroy the power plant. Hawaii Electric Light officials confirmed that if the lava does take out the plant, no blackouts should occur. Older, diesel-powered plants have been brought online to provide electricity in the wake of the erupting volcano, Jim Kelly, a spokesman for HEL, told ABC News.
