Lava flow in Hawaii’s Big Island completely devoured a car. A nearby fence was also no match for the flow, as it slowly destroyed everything in its path with its fiery mass.
Residents have been anxiously watching the Kilauea volcano, which has been spewing the molten hot magma all over the surrounding area. According to CNN, hundreds of people have been evacuated and the land covered by lava equates to about 100 football fields.
The recent outpour also may give way to even more explosive eruptions that could launch rocks for miles.
As is evident in the video, the molten lava is capable of destroying everything in its path and measured at around 103 degrees Celsius (218 degrees Fahrenheit).
According to AccuWeather, Hawaii Governor David Ige visited the island shortly after the eruption to offer his support:
“I met many people who are frightened and deeply concerned about losing everything they’ve worked for all their lives," Ige stated. "I’ve heard from people who have already lost their home. My heart goes out to these families. I reassured them that the county, state and the federal governments are working together to do everything in our power to help them get through this, to ensure their welfare and safety, and to assure them that we are here for the long haul.”
