Hawaiian Lava Display

Hawaiian Lava Display

About 44 acres of coastline at Hawaii Volcanoes National Park collapsed into the ocean this week, exposing the cliffside 45 feet above the water and unleashing a glowing lava river. "The cliff just caved away like a glacier," said park spokesman Jim Gale, commenting on the spectacular display. The stream of molten rock has since formed a ramp of new land.
