HI Lava Flow Enters Geothermal Plant   05/27 13:41

   HONOLULU (AP) -- A lava flow in Hawaii has entered the property of a 
geothermal power plant on the Big island.

   The Hawaii Volcano Observatory announced the development on Sunday morning. 
It gave no details as to how deep into the Puna Geothermal Venture lava has 
intruded.

   Officials previously moved 50,000 gallons of potentially toxic gas offsite 
and capped the wells on the property to prevent releases of additional gas if 
lava enters the wells.

   Lava-filled fissures have opened up across the southeastern side of the Big 
Island over the past three weeks as the Kilaeau volcano has become more active.
