This Quicktime movie shows a channelized flow that broke out of the lava tube early this morning at the base of the pali, west of Kalapana. Even after traveling through the lava tube system for almost 10 kilometers (about 6.2 miles), the lava is sufficiently hot to be extremely fluid, and moves swiftly downslope. For scale, the channel is about 2 meters (about 2 yards) wide.
The DisasterMapper is an interactive map of Australia that covers over 50 disaster events that have occurred at different times, ranging from the early 1900s through to the most recent events. Each event is supported by statistics, images, videos and text. The events are searchable by location, time or type of disaster. By looking at previous disasters, we can better understand and prepare for future events and build greater resilience in Australian communities.
