Hot Lava-on-Road Action (Video)
Here’s the real deal: Lava crossing Apa’a Street on the outskirts of Pahoa on the Island of Hawaii early Saturday morning:
The peeping you hear is not birds, but coqui frogs, an invasive species that has become endemic to East Hawaii in the past decade. This doesn’t do justice to how loud the little buggers are.
Here’s another view from later in the morning after sunrise. Note the utility pole in the background. Hawaii Electric has surrounded some poles with heat-resistant materials.
The lava is continuing to advance at 10-15 yards an hour.
