But there’s no rush for those who flee
This lava flowing to the sea
Since nineteen hundred eighty three,
Its edge is marked by burning trees.
No one will die, thankfully.
Walk away from this calamity.
The Goddess Pele – Hawaii’s
Built for herself, not you or me.

There seem to be a lot of volcano stories this year, including Kilauea’s Pu’O O’O crater venting lava towards homes – for example: LiveScience.com
Update Oct 4: There’s a great video of the volcano’s eruption here.
