A message from COUNTY OF HAWAII

This is a Civil Defense Message for Monday, May 28 at 6:00 in the evening.

Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that a fast moving pahoehoe flow from Fissure 8 is advancing on Nohea and Kupono Streets north of Leilani Street. There are reports of lava fountains on Moku Street.  Anyone in the area, from Pomaikai east, needs to leave now.

Due to the volcanic activity, the following policies are in effect:

·         Residents close to the active eruption need to leave the area to avoid being isolated by the flow.

·         Authorities are going door to door on the affected streets.

  • Stay alert for warnings from Civil Defense Officials
  • The Pahoa Community Center, Keaau Community Center, and Sure Foundation Church are open.  The shelters are pet friendly.

We are on watch 24-hours a day for your safety.
