Coming up for air in lower Puna

The past several weeks have been full of suspense and emotion for residents of the lower Puna District. Rather than being restful, recent weekends have been busy with notable events. On Oct. 25, lava crossed Cemetery Road/Apaa Street on the outskirts of Pahoa. On Nov. 9, a new lobe widened the flow along the road, entered private property and threatened an evacuated home. Just before noon the next day, the house was consumed by fire, the first residential structure taken by the June 27 lava flow.
