Mauna Loa erruption threatens transportation on island

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Lava from the ongoing eruption at the Mauna Loa volcano on the Island of Hawai’i is just miles away from a crucial highway.

The volcano erupted Nov. 26 for the first time in nearly forty years.

It is unlikely that any attempts will be made to redirect the flow of the lava due to the unpredictability of the flow.
