Picture This: Look Out, The Flow!


Lava began flowing from a vent in Kilauea Volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii into the sea near Volcanoes National Park in Kalapana, Hawaii on Saturday. This photograph, taken on Tuesday, shows what happens when the molten rock and water meet. The steam and the lava, even after as it cools in the water, are both dangerous, but so far no one has been hurt and no property has been damaged by the flow.
