Latest earthquakes indicate lava has moved furthered down the rift zone to area below intersection of Hwy 132 and Noni Farms road. Hope it does not come up close to 132 as that would block our exit out. And would block everyone's exit that lives on the coastal Red road. I think they are going to have to open 130 back up if that happens. All they need to do is throw some metal plates over existing 4 inch cracks in pavement. There is no steam coming out of those cracks, at least not yet.
Victoria neeson​  highway 132 has started to crack... some big cracks and land deformation
Where did you get that information? It is not correct, at least not yet. The road that had big cracks on it is the Pohiki Rd, which branches off from highway 132.

The road along the coast the improvements were soon abandoned, and forgotten. I think that was really reckless. We need those roads right now! I hope this wakes up government a little bit? But not holding my breath.

No kidding!  If they think building and maintaining roads is expensive, wait until they see the economic losses from prolongued, needless evacuations of an area where several thousand people live.  :

No it's not true. No cracks on highway 132, and it's still open. But newest fissure just opened this morning about 1 mile away from highway 132.

There is only one crack right now, with minor splattering, but yes it's expected more will open in that area because there were a lot of quakes right there.

I wish i was kidding. The government here acts like most people do in day to day life, they leave everything for last moment and only do something when dire need is right in their face. Probably now they will wait until they get emergency money for federal government to improve and make alternate routes.

This is a pretty good article in NY Times explaining in lay men's terms what is going on.
https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/05/12/us/kilauea-volcano-lava-leilani-estates-hawaii.html
They only forget to mention important fact that area of possible projectiles from explosion are all inside the national park, which has been closed for a couple of days.

Everybody here safe so far. Nobody has even had the tiniest injury, despite all those houses burning up.

That road 132 is still open, but only for local residents. And it looks like it may be closed soon as the road has a big dip in it where lava could pool. There will still be one way out via coastal road, but will be even a bigger detour.
Turns out you were right about the cracks on the road, but pretty small ones with no steaming, not fissures fortunately.

Fissure 17 is 1400 feet long, but not the biggest. I think fissure 8 was bigger. Most amazing thing about 17 is loud explosions. We can hear them here, several miles away. Sounds like thunder, or giant sledge hammer. This is the only fissure that had done that.
Good news is that the lava is moving away from us and towards the ocean. If it empties into ocean then it stops doing property damage and endangering any life.

They did open 130, but not till 1 pm. I just drove over all the metal plates on the road. The one plate that is steaming had sunk a few inches. Who knows how long it will remain open? That is the real question.

*Sigh*, hate watching this as a spectator.  I know how to cut and weld steel; I could make something a lot more durable than just some loose sheet steel across the road....

Of course, in the end it depends on what the volcano does.  I've seen some rifts opened up by tectonics from Brarbunga that are veritable canyons.  If it wants a rift there, it's going to make one.

Not regular sheet metal. Supposed to be high temperature resistant plates.
BTW, this episode shows how dumb it is to build a geothermal plant right on an active volcano, and especially dumb right into a residential zone. The plant is being shut down right now. I've seen them hauling the equipment they can salvage away in large trucks. The whole plant will be kaput. And if lava goes over the 3 remaining pressurized vents there will be giant uncontrollable and long lasting explosions. (This already happened once in 1990). They are trying to cool them down with water now, depressurize them, and cap and kill the vents. But this could all take weeks. And the lava is extremely close by.

This is not yet on place, authorities are on preparations to it due the danger of ashes, stronger explosive eruptions and big quantities of gas in the air.
