Work is expected to begin within the next several days on a temporary housing project to accommodate eruption evacuees in Pahoa.
A Government Beach Road resident was arrested Thursday evening after he drove a vehicle into a lava flow on Highway 132.
An eleventh-hour escape from a lava-doomed home was more sedate than might be expected, recounted a Leilani Estates resident who was rescued by emergency responders Sunday night.
Lava crossed Highway 132 on Tuesday afternoon, isolating Puna Geothermal Venture and cutting off the last major road serving Kapoho and Vacationland.
A total of 82 structures were confirmed destroyed by the Kilauea eruption since May 3, while 37 additional structures are inaccessible due to lava as of Friday.
As the lower Puna eruption changes the landscape day by day, a tool used to analyze ice is helping scientists learn more about lava.
While fissures in Leilani Estates spew molten lava dozens of feet in the air and sulfur dioxide bleaches color from surrounding vegetation, some parts of the subdivision remain largely unaffected according to residents who continue to live there.
No injuries were reported Monday afternoon after a stolen vehicle investigation ended with police officers shooting at a hostile suspect 13 times.
