USGS warns against roasting marshmallows at Hawaii volcano

While it may seem like commons sense, the USGS warned against the idea, saying, "We're going to have to say no", before going on to explain that marshmallows cooked that way would "taste BAD".

This May 23 satellite photo provided by DigitalGlobe shows lava coming out of fissures caused by Kilauea volcano, near the Puna Geothermal Venture in Pahoa.

As the volcano continues to spew lava, clouds of ash and deadly laze, the US Geological Survey has been providing constant updates on Twitter on the status on lava and ash clouds.

The civil defence agency had ordered more residents of the vulnerable Leilani Estates area to leave because of the lava. Its operator, Israeli-controlled Ormat Technologies Inc, said it had not been able to assess the damage. Officials have said the power plant is safe but lava has never engulfed a geothermal plant anywhere in the world, creating a measure of uncertainty.

How good is LeBron James in playoff elimination games?
Ideally, the baby arrives between tonight's Game 7 and the start of the NBA Finals in either Houston or Oakland on Thursday. One last hurdle was added Saturday when the Cavs ruled Kevin Love out for Sunday with concussion-like symptoms.

Early Monday morning it became clear that the fast-moving flow which broke out the evening before originated from fissure 8 which fed a channelized flow that first moved north along an older flow before turning east and quickly destroying a new residential area.

Since Hawaii's Kilauea volcano began a once-in-a-century-scale eruption on May 3, authorities have shutdown the plant, removed over 225,000 litres of flammable liquid, and deactivated wells that tap into steam and gas deep in the Earth's core.

Hawaii's Kilauea volcano could keep erupting for months. There was concern the lava would release hydrogen sulfide or other toxic gases. Light winds are blowing toward the northwest and ash fall may affect the Volcano and Pahala areas. The Civil Defense Agency also noted that 37 homes are "isolated" either due to lava surrounding them or roads being cut off by the flow.
