Watch lava spewing from Kilauea volcano in Hawaii (live video)

Geologists say it is among the worst events in a century

Lava from the erupting Kilauea volcano on Hawaii’s Big Island has entered the property of a geothermal power plant as workers scrambled to shut it down to prevent the uncontrollable release of toxic gases.
It is the latest danger from Mount Kilauea’s eruption, which geologists say is among the worst events in a century from one of the world’s most active volcanoes.
The Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) plant, which provides about 25 per cent of power on the Big Island, has been closed since shortly after the eruptions began on May 3 and about 227,124 litres of flammable pentane used in the plant’s turbines have already been relocated.
