This is a Civil Defense Message for Wednesday, May 30 at 6 in the evening.
Hawaiian Volcano Observatory reports that lava from several fissures continues to move through Leilani Estates, Lanipuna Gardens and towards the Kapoho area. Residents of Kapoho Beach Lots and Vacationland are advised to evacuate due to the possibility of lava cutting off access to Beach Road near Four Corners. One lava flow is approximately 2 ½ miles from Four Corners and a second is about a half-a-mile from Highway 137, north of Ahalanui County Park.
Due to the volcanic activity the following policies are in effect:
Beach Road, from Four Corners to Hawaiian Beaches, is restricted to resident access only, between 7 a.m. to 6 p.m., to allow continued evacuations.
Highway 132 is closed.
Leilani Estates residents with approved credentials are allowed to enter at 7 a.m. but must leave by 6 p.m. This curfew is strictly enforced for your safety. A mandatory evacuation is in effect past Pomaikai Street.
Residents close to any volcanic activity should remain alert and be prepared to voluntarily evacuate if necessary.
Stay tuned to local radio stations for updates from Civil Defense.
We are on watch 24-hours a day for your safety.
This is your Hawai‘i County Civil Defense Agency.
