BLYTHEVILLB (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS SATURDAY, MARCH 5, 1958 2 Rivers of Lava Leave $2 Million DamageinHawaii Molten Rivers From Volcano Move Near East By ROT ESSOYAN PAHOA, Hawaii (#— Two rivers of lava, fed by two half-mile-long fissures and lava fountains belching 500 feet in the air, moved closer to the sea today, leaving In their wake an estimated two million dollars damage. Cane fields, timber and at least nine homes were buried in steaming lava. A village of 70 homes was a ghost town, virtually isolated by the molten rivers. The lava flows ma-y reach the sea today. This sparsely settled Puna district of eastern Hawaii is about half the size of. Manhattan. For five days it has rocked and cracked under the strains of volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. Four hundred of its residents are homeless. Two-Mile Swath The steaming lava streams cut a two-mile-wide swath across the rich cane land for four miles. Twenty square miles of the dis trict, on the gentle slopes of Kilauea, is forbidden to all except civil defense officials and a few property owners. The area is studded with large earth cracks. Kapoho. evacuated Monday, will be f cut off once the lava streams pouring around it plunge into the sea. about a mile away. The tiny village lost at least five houses Thursday midnight to the lava flow. Most homes were not damaged but. isolated by lava fields, they will be worthless. Lava flows take _ months and sometimes years to cool. One property owner said "you couldn't bulldoze your way through it in 50 years." Much of the cane acreage which provided a living for the residents was under 10 feet of smoking lava. A few property owners worked their way back along the crackling lava flows to Kapoho yesterday morning. They said they found three dogs fast asleep on porches. In the center of the. town the only damage noted was three cracks in the main road.
