Feb 01, 2007
VOLCANOES NATIONAL PARK, HAWAII (KHNL)- A major chunk of Hawaii Island is set to fall into the ocean any day now. It's newly formed lava land, and it grows more unstable by the day. Three separate lava flows hit the sea, resulting in plumes of steam. Chief ranger Talmadge Magno details why. "We've got 3 ocean entries at this time, the larger being the Lae'apuki Bench entry, and that's the main one for visitation and our concerns for eventual collapse."
