USA: Hawaii lava flow threatens highways (+VIDEO)

Officials on Hawaii’s Big Island are asking the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers to help with solutions for the possibility of lava covering a major highway.

If it stays on its current path, the lava would go through downtown Pahoa and cross Highway 130 — the only road linking the 9,000 residents of lower Puna with the rest of the island.

About 7,000 vehicles travel the two-lane highway daily, and road crews have been feverishly working to finish alternate escape routes.
