Nighttime photos released by the US Geological Survey were taken in the Leilani Estates neighbourhood where the volcano has been sending up lava through vents in the ground. The fissure complex is visible in the upper center of the image.
Laze is an acid steam formed when lava hits the ocean which has been likened to battery acid due to its high toxicity levels and can be lethal.
Kauahikaua said this is the second time he has seen the blue flames.
The company also says it believes the lava's movement towards the station has halted and if anything, the molten rock now seems to be going in the other direction: the probability of it approaching the plant seems low, Ormat said. Every time they return, the couple said they don't know if it will still be there.
PAHOA, HI - MAY 23: Lava erupts and flows from a Kilauea volcano fissure in Leilani Estates, on Hawaii'sBig Island, on May 23, 2018 in Pahoa, Hawaii.
A blocked highway would cut people off from their only route to grocery stores, schools and hospitals.
However, stream of red-hot lava destroyed a former geothermal project site adjacent to the PGV grounds, civil defense said. The highway reopened after crews dropped steel plates across the cracks to provide safe access for traffic. They intersected with Pohoiki and that intersection is is no longer there.
The cracks are now deeper and wider than when they first saw them.
"I feel we were lied to". "If you need to be in Hilo or another place for work, you need to start considering moving out".
Many homes in Puna are not built to code, or are built in zones where lava flows have already wiped out previous developments, which some residents attribute to the frontier mind-set here. Ormat is traded on the New York Stock Exchange, and shares have fallen almost 10 percent since Kilauea began erupting.
Gov. David Ige told reporters Tuesday that "we are evaluating reopening Chain of Craters Road, but it's a very risky road, it hasn't been used for a long time, so we do have county and highway people really looking at it and trying to prepare it should it be necessary". A flammable gas called pentane is used as part of the process, though officials earlier this month removed 50,000 gallons (190,000 liters) of the gas from the plant to reduce the chance of explosions.
On Wednesday, molten lava from the volcano had reached within 200 meters of one of Puna's 11 geothermal energy well pads, and burned down a disused building, Haaretz reported.

He's just playing, and he'll have to play two of the best games of his career to beat back a Boston team that believes it belongs. He got little help from his teammates, who combined to shoot 38.5 percent from the field and 28.6 percent from three-point range.
What makes this ban even more ridiculous is that there are so many apps similar to Steam Link already available in the App Store. The company doesn't take a cut out of these sales and you could be doing such things on any other remote desktop client as well.
