Watch This Huge 'Waterfall' of Lava Pour Into the Ocean
"Hiking and boating near the lava flow is being discouraged by the National Park Service."
LOL You think they'd be a little more forceful about letting people get so close.
It would be pretty cool to see up close though.
There should be a big sign at the boundary saying "Earn your Darwin Award ahead!"
Stupidity should be painful.
How long before there is new waterfront property... ?
i am stupid about romantic love. that was painful. still is.
i think i prefer molten earth vomit...
Great name for a metal band!
Actually, this was created when previous waterfront property (from older flows) collapsed and fell into the ocean, so there might be quite a hole to fill up.
Eventually. C'mon, how deep is the Pacific, anyway?
Keeping in mind that measured from the ocean floor, it's the tallest (but not highest) mountain on Earth!
Perfectly content to watch videos of this sort of thing. No desire whatsoever to get a closer look!
Yeah, I figure getting "up close and personal" to stuff like this is why drones were invented.
So we were on the big island in November. We took the chopper trip up to see the volcano up close and also where it pours into the sea.
On the way to the spot where it goes into the sea, the pilot gave us a narrative on how dangerous it is to be around that area on foot because the lava rock is deceiving and although it looks strong can crumble quite easily. He said there had been three deaths that year (2016) from people getting too close, rock collapsing and then persons falling to their demise.
When we get to site (and we were pretty close in the air actually) he says "There's some people down there right now that are out of bounds and waaay too close to the edge".
We look down there and he's right.
Hmmm...may have to change my sig, or just add this one!
Well, on the upside, I guess falling in to red hot lava will save the family burial fees.
That was neat, but I thought this was going to be about your new band EarthPuke.
I am stealing this name.
When we got up the crater, the pilot said " Hmmm...there's some fresh lava today."
To me it all sort of looked the same. He said " See the black lava? That's old lava and it's cool. See the silvery lighter stuff? That's new and although it looks just like rock it's actually still about 1500 to 1800 degrees Fahrenheit underneath".
You beat me to it, haha. I saw the title "Earthpuke" and that was immediately my first thought.
