    Jay Turkovsky, president of the Leilani Community Association, stands in front of an active fissure 5 on Tuesday on Kahukai Street in Leilani Estates.

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.
