Geothermal Power Plant in Hawaii Remains Threatened by Lava
New Fissure, 22nd Vent Located SE of Puna Geothermal
Progress made in securing Puna Geothermal Plant, but work is 'not done yet
The Hawaiian Volcano Observatory has reported a new fissure this morning, between fissures 19 and 20, in an area southeast of the Puna Geothermal Venture facility.
The latest development comes as the eruption enters its third week.
Forty structures have been reported destroyed as of this morning.
Several fissures are active with spattering. A lava flow at fissure 17 is covering the existing lava flow, but no new advancement is occurring.
Due to the continued volcanic activity the following policies are in effect:
To help residents, authorities are distributing free masks for ash protection.
Map shows the location of the lava flow spreading from fissure 17 as of 7:00 a.m. HST, May 16. The flow is following a path of steepest descent (blue line) south of a 1955 ‘a’ā flow. Shaded purple areas indicate lava flows erupted in 1840, 1955, 1960, and 2014-2015. PC: US Geological Survey.
At 7:45 a.m. HST on Thursday, May 17,, view of Halema‘uma‘u crater from the visitor viewing area in front of the Jaggar Muesum, Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. A light coating of ash on the Park’s interpretative sign resulted from ash falling to the ground from explosive events of the past day. Note the contrast of the plume rising from the Overlook vent this morning (background) with the eruption column that erupted during explosive activity in May 1924 (middle photograph on sign).

At 7:45 a.m. HST, only traces of ash (dark areas on white rail) remain on this fence in the Volcano Golf and Country Club Subdivsion, located 4 km (2.5 mi) from the Overlook crater in Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. PC: US Geological Survey
