COURTESY HAWAIIAN VOLCANO OBSERVATORY Lava burned its way through a field Sunday in Pahoa. With the leading edge of the flow expanding to about 150 yards wide, the lava advanced about 250 yards between
6:30 a.m. Saturday and 6:30 a.m. Sunday. At that pace, Hawaii County Civil Defense officials said, about 50 households might have to evacuate Tuesday. “It’s so heart-wrenching to just have to pack up and leave,” said Pahoa resident Ilyn Narciso. “I feel like a zombie while packing.”
