Lava flow from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano blocking escape routes

Lava continues to blast from Hawaii's Kilauea volcano, and it's cutting off escape routes for people trying to evacuate.

The massive amount of lava in Leilani Estates is spreading fast. It has burst more than 25 stories high, and reaching temperatures of nearly 2,000 degrees.

"The scientific aspect of this is fascinating but it's tempered hugely by the fact that this is a neighborhood and people have lost homes," said Scott Rowland, a geologist with the University of Oregon.
