Transfer station readies for reopening amid stalled lava


PAHOA >> The public has a few days left to get a glimpse of Hawaii lava from a viewing area set up by the county.

After slow-moving lava poured into the Pahoa trash transfer station, it was turned into a public viewing area last month.

Hawaii County Civil Defense Director Darryl Oliveira says the public can view the lava Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. It will be closed to the public Thursday to allow the last group of schoolchildren to tour the site.

Starting Sunday it will be closed to get ready to reopen the transfer station.

The civil defense agency says the lava hasn’t advanced since Monday and remains 0.36 miles from Highway 130. It’s west of the Pahoa police and fire stations, which are located across the highway.
