I was very fortunate to witness the lava flowing into the ocean on the Big Island in 1986. I am not sure the exact number of times this has happened since Kilauea began to erupt in 1983. The lava is once again flowing into the ocean.
I am home sick today and have no energy to write much. I am posting a link to a video of the lava flowing into the ocean and two photos, each of which are linked to articles on the recent lava flow.
