Shocking aerial footage shows lava covering 5,000+ acres – Daily Mail


The Hawaii volcano eruption is expected to impact Hawaii’s marine and animal life for decades as the environment changes in the wake of the lava flow. Kilauea, on Hawaii’s Big Island, first start erupting lava on May 3, resulting in lava oozing over residential communities and heading towards the Pacific Ocean. The lava first met the ocean on May 20. While the lava flow has received lots of attention for destroying neighborhoods as it’s flowed, it has also been quietly covering Hawaii’s famed tide pools, hot springs and coastal waters, changing the shoreline in the process. Scientists say that the impact will be seen in major ways. ‘On the shoreline, the differences will be night and day,’ Frank Samsone, a professor of oceanography at UH Manoa, told KHON.
