This educational video for schoolchildren shows new lava flows at the Pāhoa Transfer Station when lava broke out on the north side of the mountain in June of 2014. The lava began flowing from the east and cut through miles of forest throughout the summer. By October, it approached Pāhoa and engulfed large sections of the tiny town. The video explains safety precautions taken by locals to keep the lava from burning the town’s resources.
