Product Description

Kalapana, Hawaii - 22 April 1990

Slow-moving pahoehoe lava gradually spread through the community, burning homes and covering parks, roads, and gardens. This experience was extremely difficult for people who had to leave their homes and land to advancing lava. The experience was also grim for scientists monitoring the volcano and Civil Defense officials providing up-to-date information to residents. It wasn't easy to watch families abandon their community as it was slowly flooded by lava.
