The Puna Geothermal Venture (PGV) power plant lies near Leilani Estates where lava flows have destroyed several homes. Currently they have identified at least 15 fissures in the area.
The plant holds tens of thousands of gallons of explosive fuel to run the plant, they are removing the fuel but it is a time consuming process. The plant was shut down after the eruption as they work on evacuating the fuel. The fear is that the lava flow may ignite the fuel and cause a massive explosion. The lava is moving in the direction of the plant and there is not much that can be done to avert the movement.
Recently information has surfaced from an anonymous source working for the Civil Defense. The message is to ‘be prepared’ as earthquake data is going ‘off the charts’ and is triggering alarms. The message goes on to say that the National Guard is getting prepared in event of a explosion.
