You’ve heard of the expression, when the rubber meets the road. Well, what happens when hot lava meets the road? Just watch this outstanding video of a fresh lava flow on a section of Highway 130 on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Isn’t it incredible that the lava burns the asphalt with such ease? There’s no way a speed bump would stop a lava flow from going where it wants to go. What an amazing force!
Note that this video was just filmed this past Saturday. The brave camera person, volcanochaser, got much closer to the lava than what us amateurs should do. Please keep a safe distance and see my tips for watching the lava flow.
